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 - Uncommon Household Items
We never notice the things that are under our nose every day. With a little imagination its amazing what we can find to photograph right in our own homes. Now I don't mean pull out vase of flowers an put it in the window. That's 'still life' which is a different contest entirely.
The challenge here is to look at everyday things in different ways. Think wide angles, unusual perspectives, macro, and creative lighting. Take a stereo or an old shoe and turn it into a work of art!
