Weekly Assignment

Zoomier!We finished off our bflynn‘s almost abstract Salmon shot. You wouldn’t necessarily guess that it’s salmon though because of that abstract quality. This is a case where showing the details really creates a lot of interest because of how it changes your perception of the subject. Well done everyone!

Crayons 54/365Seeing SalmonWe also started our newest assignment this week, which is Shoes. We all wear them at some time or another. Sometimes they’re fancy, sometimes they’re utilitarian, sometimes they’re comfortable, other times they aren’t. They say that shoes tell us a lot about the person wearing them, so it’s only natural that shoes would tell a story in pictures too. So this week, your challenge is to take an interesting photo of shoes. As always, a quick reminder of the rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 23 Feb – 9 March 2011. Second, your post must include the word “Shoes” and the date that the photo was taken. If either of these is not included it will not be included in the mini-contest judging. Finally, your EXIF should be intact, and it’s useful if you can include the main points such as camera, lens, aperture, ISO, shutter speed, etc. Next week’s assignment is Delicate. While the interpretation of this is up to you, try to think outside of the box and come up with something new and interesting if possible.

Hot Threads

  • Portrait or Candid?: Say you take a photo of a person. Is it a portrait? Is it a candid? Is it an environmental portrait? Can a candid ever be a portrait? Or does a portrait require some sort of setup. Come join in on the interesting discussion of what makes a portrait and what makes a candid over in the forums.
  • Kickstarter Projects: Have you ever had a brilliant idea for a photography project, only to realise that you just don’t have the money to actually complete it? One of our forum members pointed us to a website that helps you raise money to complete an art project (not limited to photography). Check out the thread to see what others are doing and if you’re interested, apply for your own.
  • If You Could Only Buy 1 Walk Around Canon L Lens: What would you buy? For all you Canon users out there, what’s your favourite walk around lens? Come share over in the forums.

  • Hi.
    How Can I see all the pictures that participate on this weekly contest?

    Thankyou
    P.S. I liked the RPM picture, doing it with the velocimeter would be much harder isnt it 🙂 ?

  • Hi

    Although I can’t post my pictures to the Forum for the Shoe Assignment, I will include them here and perhaps somehow they can make it over to the Forum.
