Over the last few months we’ve had a lot of fun with our weekend photography challenges. In each case we at dPS have chosen a theme, announced it and you as our valued readers have gone off and shot an image on that theme and come back and shared it with us in our comments section.
This week we’re trying something different – instead of us naming a theme, YOU are going to set yourself an assignment.
You know the type of photography that you want to improve on most – so this weekend choose a topic that you think will stretch you a little or that is something that you’ve been meaning to explore – and then go and shoot on that topic.
- You might need to take a headshot of yourself for your blog – ‘headshot’ could be your topic.
- You’ve been meaning to use that new macro lens but never get around to it – ‘macro’ or ‘up close’ could be your topic.
- You have a family trip to the aquarium planned this weekend – ‘jellyfish’ could be your theme
- You’ve always wanted to try a technique like ‘slow sync flash‘ – there’s your topic!
It’s totally up to you (the main thing is that you get out and shoot something and improve your photography this weekend) – but to help keep you accountable what we’re asking is that pick a theme and share it below before you go and shoot it. This way you’ll have your assignment in mind before you go out.
Once you’ve taken your shot/s – select the best 1-2 and come back to this post and share it with us – either by sharing a link to it on your blog, flickr page or other photosharing site – or by embedding it into your comment.
Can’t wait to see the shots you take this weekend!
