ok we admin have come up with a new mini contest for the weekly assignments, and can opt out each week if that's what you want..
ok here is how it will work.. i will List the new assignment for the following week (2 weeks to get the shot/photo you want)
The Assignments will run the same Wed to Tue, and at the end of the week (wed) the Mods and I will choose the best Photo of the assignment .. and place it on the Blog on Sunday, there will also be 2 Honourable mentions..
We are NOT after the technically best we are after creativity and composition, so if it has blown out parts thats ok.. sometimes this cant be helped. But we do want you to think about the subject you are photographing .. think about the background (is it distracting) the DOF, use the rules of third if possible, and above all try and match it as close as possible to the assignments topic
soo In order to opt-in each week you must place with in your post
"Assignment: X" (X being the assignment topic) this makes it easier for us Mods to search the thread via the search tool as some assignments get over 6 pages with in a week if your image doesn't come up on the search its cause you didn't place the correct search words..
Only one entry for the mini contest is allowed tho you are allowed to post more than one image to the assignments... just do it in a separate post
Remember if you want to OPT-OUT don't place the search term within your post.
these mini contests wont start till next week .... Any questions you have please post in this thread so i can answer you as quick as possible ^.^
And to get you started Next weeks assignment will be
BEACH : beach life, things found on the beach,Summertime fun
PS: from Darren.
If you participate in our assignments and want to pass on word about them to others, a simple way to do so is to link to Digital Photography School's Assignment section of these forums on the page on Flickr (or other photo sharing) where you're hosting your shot.
For example, on Flickr where you can add a description to a shot you could paste this html:
My Latest Submission for a Digital Photography School Assignment
Alternatively you could change the URL in that code to be the actual assignment you're entering.
No pressure to do this - but it'd help spread the word about DPS.
