Weekly Assignment  *Sorry for the late posting folks, I was cooking!!*

This Week in the Digital Photography School ForumsThis week we finished the kelleyrie with the American Dream – Magic, well done!

The American DreamDay DreamerThis week’s assignment is Sleep. It just seemed right at the time, Saralonde asked “What should our assignment be fore next week, and, as I’d been doing some very long evenings in the run up to the forum redesign (Which I hope you”ll all agree is just great!) My immediate and unwavering reply was “Sleep!” As usual, there are a few rules for you to qualify to win. Your photo must have been taken between 7 Jan, 2009 – 21 January 2009, your post must include the words “Assignment: Sleep” and the date the photo was taken, and your EXIF should be intact with the main points in your post. Next week’s assignment will be “High ISO”.

  • How do you save your photos?: Digital photography means a lot of pictures since it’s much cheaper and faster than film. However, what do you do with all these photos? Do you save them all? Do you print them? Put them in books? Save them to CD/DVDs? How do you save all your photos?
