This Week in the Digital Photography School Forums (13-19 Mar ’11)


Weekly Assignment

We finished up our duna‘s “waiting”. The mother presents a very strong figure in contrast to what is often portrayed of pregnancy but one, you would want to tread gently around. It was a nice twist on the idea of delicate.

MarDELIC006 waitingOur newest assignment is Geometric Shapes. Try looking for geometric shapes in the world around you; don’t construct your own. You can find them in the natural world with plants as well as man made architectural shapes or objects you find around your home. Concentrate on training your eye to find them wherever you are. Try different angles or lighting to emphasise the shape you want to highlight. Shadows can add to the geometric feeling. But before you get started, first a quick reminder of the rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 9-23 March 2011. Second, your post must include the words “Geometric Shapes” and the date that the photo was taken. Finally, your EXIF should be intact, and it’s useful if you can include some of the main points, such as camera, lens, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. Next week’s assignment will be The Marketplace Whether you shop at Wal-mart, a tiny corner store, or an open air market, I’d like to see some interesting images of a marketplace. You can show it as a wide angle or a more intimate view, but I’d like to get the feeling of the place you are photographing.
