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 30 rolls of the Fuji Professional film of their choice courtesy of B&H Photo Video, runners up receive 10 rolls each.
This Month - Take a Cool Pet Photo
Since we got such a response to last month's article on photographing pets we decided that this month's self assignment should be to take a cool pet photo.
Images should be in color and can be shot with any focal length lens. Use your imagination. Extra points for humor and creativity.
Disclaimer: No pets were harmed in the creation of the images and the iguana had a two beer limit.
