What's with weekly assignments then?
Well.... Here we are, the forum upgrade has happened (though, we're still working through little things) and I want to revisit weekly assignments.
Here's what we're thinking at this point.
We'll run a weekly assignment as per before - there will be a theme each week.
What we'll do is have a monthly winner - not weekly - that will win *something* I'm still working on this, but probs something from my client, thinkTank Photo, like a camera bag or something.... Does that appeal?
How? Well, over the four weeks, we'll keep an eye on the assignments and make notes of those that may be shortlisted for the winners spot for that month....
We may also take into account the new 'LIKE' feature - but if we see it being overused, like one image getting 600 likes where others typically rack up a handful, we'll slap you with a frozen, wet fish... cool? (cold!)
What do people think and what would you like to see involved in the assignments? Comments below.
As an aside - I may see if I can find one of you that is interested in being the 'assignment moderator' ..it's a thankless task, but if you're interested, drop me a PM.
****pls note, the thinkTank link above IS an affiliate link - but it's only for you guys to get a bonus if you buy something, as I work for thinkTank it doesn't make me MEGA RICH, in fact, it doesn't do anything for me at all.... there ya go, disclosure...

All sounds good to me, Sime."No matter how slow the film, Spirit always stands still long enough for the photographer It has chosen." (Minor White)

Sounds good Sime. No suggestions at this point but I'll chime in probably when the drugs wear off, doctors appt. today. Pain shot for a slipped disc they had to put back in. I really like it, the shot not the slipped disc. But I digress I like the idea.

Not that I expect to win, but don't most people have camera bags - I know I have six
Monthly winner prize - hmm, let me see - I'm thinking maybe a D4.

In order to stand a chance as newbie, I suggest "picture with the biggest improvement opportunities", or just send me the bag
Jokes aside, given the time of year, one of the assignments could be "Christmas, but not christmassy"
