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 20 rolls of the Professional film of their choice courtesy of FujiFilm Professional.
This Month - Capture the Essence of Fall
This month's self assignment is about capturing the essence of the fall season.
Whether it's a landscape of brilliant fall colors, a stack of ripe pumpkins, or kids dressed for Halloween, there are numerous icons that just say "fall".
So go for a drive in the country, roam around your neighborhood, and find unique fall images. You can use any focal length lens and images can be color or black and white.
