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 - Holiday Photos
An amazing array of photo opportunities present themselves to us during the holidays. But something about the holiday hustle and bustle can reduce even veteran photographers to snap shooters.
This year slow down a little. Take your camera along and notice the little details that go into images that say Christmas, Hanukah or Happy New Year.
We've included two of last years winners as examples here. But images could be anything from a brightly decorated home to the light in a child's eyes as they open a present.
For some further tips check out the article Holiday Photo Tips. But the most important thing is to be out there looking for those special images.
