Self Assignment Contest

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 some cool stuff.  This months winner will get 20 rolls of the Professional film of their choice courtesy of FujiFilm Professional and a copy of the Paint Shop Power Suite Photo Edition which includes Paint Shop Pro 8.0, Photo Album 4.0, Paint Shop Xtras 1&2 and Animation Shop couresy of Jasc Software.

Runners up will receive 10 rolls of the Professional film of their choice courtesy of FujiFilm Professional and a copy of the Paint Shop Power Suite Photo Edition which includes Paint Shop Pro 8.0, Photo Album 4.0, Paint Shop Xtras 1&2 and Animation Shop couresy of Jasc Software.

This Month - Landscapes

A quick look through this month's issue with articles on composition, spring photography, and hyperfocal distance makes this one a natural. And you don't have to live next door to Yellowstone to win. There are dramatic landscapes to be found almost anywhere. Don't believe us? Check out the article Spring Detour in this month's issue and Photos That Lie from issue #30 for some inspiration.
