Photo challenges (or photo “assignments”) are a great way of helping us to step out of our comfort zones with the camera. We post one new challenge to our forums monthly, were everyone is welcome to push themselves in coming up with spectacular photos based on the theme which we assign! Remember, the name of the game here is not only great photography, but having fun and thinking creatively. And your assignment theme is…
The Assignment Theme Is…
Assignment #62 Theme: Rain
Timeframe: Feb 1st to Feb 15th, 2012
Entries are to be submitted here: Assignment #62: Rain (PhotographyBB Forums)
The challenge is to take a BRAND NEW representing the given theme.
Shooting in the rain is (in my humble opinion) one of the BEST things you can do for your photography. Most people are scared to try it, which is why we don’t often see photos taken in the rain; and when we do – they are usually quite stunning. A simple plastic bag and elastic band can protect your camera, or even try shooting-through a window if you don’t want to venture outside. Want to create something truly unique? Try shooing in the rain at night – colours and light come alive through reflections. How ever you choose to approach this assignment, put some thought into it and have a blast.
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, and the top 3 photos will be selected and published (with image acknowledgments) in an upcoming issue of the PhotographyBB Online Magazine.
Why Should You Participate?
In our efforts to help photographers grow and improve, our photography assignments are designed to test and push your creative bounds 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 Forums. Membership is completely free and you can register in seconds, so feel free to join our community of photographers where we participate in assignments, share photos, and discuss 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!
