    Default Assignment: "Fill the Frame" Nov. 10 - 24

    This week: Another Back to Basics composition assignment. Get in close, now even closer. "Fill the Frame" with your subject. Get rid of superfluous backgrounds and distracting secondary objects and make that subject stand out.

    6 Tips for Perfect Composition in Portrait Photography
    Fill Your Frame

    I came across this colorful display of umbrellas at a Renaissance festival:
    Umbrellas
    1/8000 f/2.8
    Focal Length 40 mm
    ISO 400

    As always, rules:

    Just a note to new posters: DO NOT start a new thread for your post. Please just hit the reply button at the bottom of any current post and put your image there.

    1. Your original image you submit should be taken between the 10th of November and the 24th of November. Each week as an assignment closes on the Wednesday, it will be AUTOMATICALLY deemed *CLOSED* after 8am GMT (3AM EST) and any posts after that time will not be eligible for the assignment competition. Don't wait until the last minute to post!

    2. Your post must include "Fill the Frame" (to show your permission to count it for the contest) and the date the picture was taken (to show that it is a valid entry).

    3. EXIF data should be intact. It helps if you can include the main points (including camera, lens, date taken, ISO, shutter speed and aperture) in the text of your message.

    4. Only one entry per member (if you can't restrain yourself until the end of the first week you can post two or three separate pictures but your entry should be in a separate post and the only marked with the text above). It must be an original image taken by you.

    5. Remember the cross-site image size limit (740px on the longest side).

    6. If the image does not exist in post at the end of the contest, it is disqualified. If you modify anything on flickr and re-save the image then the link is broken and the message needs edited to link the picture again before it will be included in the contest.

    For everyone, please do not repeat other people's photos by quoting them until the contest is over. If you want to comment on or discuss an entry you can use a link to it (or just delete the picture from the quoted text).

    7. If you are looking for the winners of the mini-contest, please check the front page of the DPS blog Saturday late afternoon (EST) and here.

    Next week: One more composition assignment, "Repetition and Patterns". With a little looking, you can find this anywhere, in nature, man-made objects or you can create your own. The trick is to make it interesting to your viewer.

    Using Repetition and Patterns in Photography

    Since the "Break the Rule of Thirds" contest only ended a few hours ago, we haven't had time to vote yet. Look for them on Saturday.

    Or, if you mean the "Rule of Thirds" one from the week before, it is on the blog as always:

    This Week in the Digital Photography School Forums (7-13 Nov ‘10)

    A quick tip for everyone looking for the results - got to Digital Photography Tips: Digital Photography School and search for "this week" using the box near the top right. That seems to focus things in (although, to be honest, it works even better just to subscribe to the RSS feed).

    Default Fill the Frame

    Once I know the new assignment, I set out to shoot my interpretation of it. Somehow I could not find anything this time that filled the frame in a pleasing way. On my way home however, I was waiting to cross the road and saw a woman next to me touch her face. I managed to get this candid shot.

    Default "Fill the Frame" assignment

    I havn't posted in such a long time, please forgive me if I didn't do this correctly.
    Plus my Canon is in the hospital, here's hoping it's in the recovery room. So this was with my point and shoot taken at a pretty special auto museum in Los Angeles.

    I changed it to sepia tone just because. Any critiquing is much appreciated.

    Default Assignment: Fill the Frame

    I've been trying to get better at moving closer to my subjects. For some reason I tend to stand back a bit. In this recent maternity session, I framed my shot with both subjects completely in my view. When I saw the laughter, I stepped in to get a tight shot & fill the frame with just the mother-to-be. I realize I could have gone even closer & selected just her face. But this is definitely progress in the right direction for me
