Photography Assignment: Cups

Great work on the previous assignment which proved to be a real challenge! Just in time for the weekend, we’ve posted our latest photo assignment to the forums which runs until July 28th. Why should you participate in photo assignments? 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! Now, onto your next photo assignment…

Assignment #40 Theme: Cups
Timeframe: July 16th to July 28th, 2010
The challenge is to take a BRAND NEW showing the them: Cups
Entries are to be submitted here: Assignment 40: Cups (PhotographyBB Forums)

The real challenge with this assignment will be for you to decide how you will photograph such an everyday object in such a way that it becomes an interesting photograph for the viewer. Pay close attention to things like the lighting, the environment and background of the scene, and also your shooting angles and tell us the story behind your “cups” photo. We will accept any type of cup in the shot including mugs, glasses, etc…

Important: 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.

Everyone is welcome to participate. 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!
