Photo Assignments Are Back!
Just as we relaunched our new Community, we’re relaunching our Photography Assignments starting today! Here’s how it works: We pick a theme, and you make photographs based on that theme. The only rule is that the photo you submit MUST BE A NEW PHOTO (no digging through archives).
We’re all about helping photographers to improve their craft and broaden their creative scope, and we feel that our photo assignments are a great way to do this. Through our assignments, you will practice things such as photography “rules”, composition, camera techniques, and creative exercises to help you see differently. With that being said, let’s get on with the show!
Your First Assignment Theme Is…
Assignment #1 Theme: Song Titles
Timeframe: Dec 21st to Dec 31st, 2012
Entries are to be submitted here: Assignment #1: Song Titles (PhotographyBB Community)
The challenge is to take a BRAND NEW representing the given theme.
One of the great challenges for all photographers is eliciting an emotional reaction from your viewers. Like photography, music is evocative on several levels. Your challenge is to think of any song, and then create a photograph around the title of that song. This is one of the more challenging creative exercises, but the intention is to give you creative liberty with your choice of song title, while providing focus to the subject once you’ve made your choice.
Important (Please Read): With all of our photo assignments, the object (besides having fun) is to learn something new, even if that means learning how to see the world around you in a different way. Therefore, we only accept entries for new photos which have been taken during the assignment time frame (see above). You may submit up to 3 entries in total.
Why Should You Participate?
In our efforts to help photographers grow and improve, our photography assignments are designed to test and push your creativity to the limit. These photo assignments are intended to encourage our members to see the world in different ways, try new camera techniques, and photograph subject which you may normally shy away from. We feel that in doing this, you will ultimately find new challenges for yourself which will help us to all grow as photographers. Our photography assignments are open to everyone at all skill levels and are to be submitted through our assignments section in the PhotographyBB Community. Membership is completely free and you can register in seconds, then do fun things such as sharing photos or discussing photography all day long. We have a supportive and friendly community of photographers and beginners, and this is a great way to get to know one another. Have fun, and happy photographing!
