Weekly Assignment

This Week in the Digital Photography School Forums (21-27 Mar '10)This week we asked you to show off your advertising savvy in our Obijuan‘s Harley potato photo. If you’re like me and didn’t quite get the reference, apparently the sound of Harley’s V-twin engine sounds like: potato, potato, potato. In this one, we really liked the light and the way it fell off the subject, and the application of the sticker / logo, whether digital or not was done really well. Congrats to this week’s winners!

Platinumsmith Jewellery (by rko43)We also started our newest assignment this week, Tell Me a Story. For this week’s assignment, we want you to look for something meaningful in your life. It may be an object, it may be a place, but we want you to photograph something wt. a special meaning to you, and if you’d like, we’d love to get a few short lines about it’s background and what makes it special. As usual, a quick rundown of the rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 17-31 March 2010. Second, your post must include the words “Assignment: Tell me a story” and the date the photo was taken. And last, but not least, your EXIF should be intact, and it’s helpful if you can include some of the main details, like camera, lens, shutter speed, aperture, etc. Next week’s assignment will be Spring/Fall. So show us what the change of seasons brings in your area of the world.
