Last week I received an email, along with all the other contributors to the After Before Friday Forum. It was a was with a heavy heart that Stacy called time on Forum while keeping One Photo Focus going. I can understand why Stacy needed to take a step back from the forum and although this is good for her, I was quite sad that the forum would be coming to an end. For one I have always enjoyed the forum although I wasn’t there from week one I have been an active member from close to the beginning.
I decided to ask Stacy, as long as I wasn’t being too presumptuous, if I could continue the forum here on Aperture64. We did decided to wait to see if any others were wanting to take up the mantle, before Stacy said that I could pick up the torch. To be honest I hosting the forum is more of a caretaker’s role, Stacy was the brain child of the forum and kept us all in line.
I really really didn’t want to change anything with the forum, everything is the same except I will host it weekly on my blog instead of by weekly on Stacy’s Blog. Although I am hosting the forum weekly there is no obligation to take part each week, if you wish to take part by weekly you can.
If you want to take part you can email me you After and Before photos for week 59 of the forum to; firstname.lastname@example.org , before midnight Wednesday EST to give me Thursday to curate Friday’s Post. You can read the full guidelines of the After Before Friday Forum here.
I hope you will try the forum out, if you have never taken part before or are looking for a fun way to share photography with others give it ago.
