This Week in the Digital Photography School Forums (3-9 Apr ’11)


Weekly Assignment

During the week we finished up our ratkillah‘s keyboard shot. There were a lot of desk shots but what set this one apart was the ramp and leading lines along the keyboard which direct your view to the hand of someone working. Well done everyone!

We also started our newest thread this week, Homelife: Chores Sometimes it seems like the work is never done. We come home from work only to have to do more work in our homes. So we want you to show us about your chores, and remember, try to do so in an interesting way. As always, a quick reminder of the rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 30 March – 13 April 2011. Second, your post must include the words “Homelife: Chores” and the date the photo was taken. Finally, your EXIF should be intact, and it’s useful if you can include some of the main points like camera, lens, ISO, shutter speed, and aperture in the text of your message. Next week we’re going to keep going with our homelife theme, but next week we want you to focus on Leisure Time, and try to do so while keeping the rule of thirds in mind.
