When viewing/appreciating photography (and visual arts in general), often the most simple scenes and themes wind up connecting most strongly with the viewers. As we prepare to start a new year, we are going to be elevating the level of our photo assignment themes to capture more than just the visual, and push our members to really consider the connection to the viewers of their photography.
The Assignment Is…
Assignment #49 Theme: Simplicity
Timeframe: Dec 3rd to Dec 15th, 2010
The challenge is to take a BRAND NEW showing the theme: Simplicity
Entries are to be submitted here: Assignment #49: Simplicity(PhotographyBB Forums)
This should be a real challenge with many creative submissions. The act of capturing something simple while evoking some sort of emotion is a skill which takes lots of practice. This photo assignment should prove to be enlightening for both our photographers and the viewers. Be creative and have fun shooting this theme!
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!
