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 - Rust Never Sleeps
Weather and corrosion take their toll on everything. The textures created by aging have long fascinated photographers. It could be a tight crop of peeling paint, an abandoned car in a corn field, an empty building, or a tight shot of a rusted piece of iron.
The image should convey age or aging, or possibly a bygone era and it should be interesting to the eye.
The only subject off limits is people. Though an older person's face can posses many of these traits we're after the affects of time on places and things this month. You can use color or black and white and there's no restriction on focal lengths.
