Weekly Assignment

This Week in the Digital Photography School Forums (12-18 Jul '09)This week we wanted you to show us aschmelly‘s water crown shot. The mistake was the strange reflection caused by the lights across her lens. And of course, the colours that were created by those lights were the reasons that we liked it.

In order to be eligible for the mini contest to have your photos features on the blog, you need to follow a few rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 8 – 22 July 2009. Second, your post must include the words “Assignment: Humor” and the date the photo was taken. Finally, your EXIF should be intact, and if possible, it’s helpful if you include the main points in your post so that others can learn from what you’ve done. Next week’s assignment will be “Machinery”. Whether it’s old or new, where would we be without machines? Your challenge is to show us how you can take an interesting picture of a somewhat cold, inanimate object.

Hot Threads
