What are Self Assignments and Why Do Them?
We all tend to get in creative ruts sometimes. We start assuming too much about what we can and can't photograph, and about the limits of our equipment, our film, and ourselves. These assignments (hopefully) take you out of your comfort zone and get you photographing things you might not normally shoot.
The only way to really learn is to do, and the more film you put through your camera the better you'll get. Plus you get the chance to win a bunch of film. This months winner will get 20 rolls of the Professional film of their choice courtesy of FujiFilm Professional.
This Month - Explore Colors
This month explore images where color is the theme of the image. It's easy to get caught up in creating documentary photos; images that document a landscape, a place or a person.
But this month we're going to get a little more abstract. Color catches your eye and draws you to a subject. But when it catches our eye we don't always know what to do with it.
So this month throw your camera in the front seat of the car, and carry it along while you're out doing your holiday shopping. This time of year there are all kinds of colorful displays, decorations, and signs.
And don't forget Mother Nature! Whether it's the bright colors in the last leaves of fall, the deep reds of a sunset, or the vibrant yellow in the fender of a Corvette, color is all around us. So experiment, play, and take the kind of shots that people look at and say "I'm not sure what it is but it looks cool!"
