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 winners will get 30 rolls of the Professional film of their choice courtesy of our sponsor FujiFilm.
This Month - Summer Beach Scenes
It's summer and we're at the beach, on the lake, in the pool, and under the sprinkler. So take advantage of all that water and get some free film from Vivid Light! This month's self assignment is to take a summer photo that involves the water. We're giving you a lot of latitude here. The only parameters are that water be involved and that it be a photo that says "summer."
