Weekly Assignment

This Week in the Digital Photography School Forums (20-26 Mar '11)Our jojonac‘s Triangles. The strong lines work well, but what really catches your eye is the odd piece out. It helps break up the repetition and shows the depth. Well done everyone!

on the brooklyn bridge 2This Week in the Digital Photography School Forums (20-26 Mar '11)We also started our Marketplace assignment this week. Whether you shop at Wal-mart, a tiny corner store, or an open air market, we want to see some interesting images of a marketplace. You can show it as a wide angle or a more intimate view, but we want to get the feeling of the place you are photographing. As always, a quick reminder of the rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 16 – 30 March 2011. Second, your post must include the words “The Marketplace” and the date that the photo was taken to show that it is eligible for the mini-contest. Finally, your EXIF should be intact, and it’s helpful if you can include some of the main points such as camera, lens, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. Next week we our assignment The Workplace will be posted, but you can start photographing now. Good luck everyone!

But does that mean that we should ignore the other modes? Come share your opinions over on the forum.
  • Photography With A Compact Camera – Introduction: You might also feel like if you don’t have a dSLR you can’t take creative shots, but RichardTaylor has put together a post to help show you how to get the most out of even the most basic camera.
  • Picture Titles: When you post a photo online you might consider giving it a title. Or maybe not. Does a title add to the image? Can it ruin it? Share your thoughts over in the forums.
