What's in your bag? (By lyskabar)

This week at DPS we finished our first assignment that had a sponsor! thinkTank photo kindly offered a thinkTANK Rotation 360 camera bag as a prize in our assignment; “What’s in your bag?” There were so many entries! We had so many interpretations of the theme and lots of thought went into your entries, thanks. I have given first place to thinkTANK photo!

Coming into the busy Christmas period, it’s always best to take some time out and “Relax” which is our assignment theme this week. While you can post any pictures that fit the theme, if you want to be part of the mini-contest, we have a few rules. First, your picture must have been taken between 5 – 19th of November 2008. Second, your post must include the words “Assignment:Relax” to show you want it counted in the assignment. And last, your EXIF needs to be intact, and it’s very helpful if you post the main points (camera, lens, date taken, ISO, shutter speed & aperture) in your entry post.

G-Drive Logo Next week’s assignment will be “Drive” you can take that any way you’d like, But this assignment is also going to have a great sponsor in G-Technology who have kindly sent us a beautiful 1 Terrabyte G-Drive Q, This award winning drive is sure to sort out all your “Drive” needs… So, Get thinking and maybe you’ll walk away with this great prize.
