Hi members - I'm lookin' for good accessible suggestions for this month.

So here are a coupla suggestions;

regular assignment - shooting from a low angle.

level 2 assignment - Shoot a portrait at F-16 or smaller (F-22, F32 etc.)

feel free to support them or suggest others; no worries.....but the suggestions with the most support in the next 24 hours, become August's challenges.


I had a thought for level 2 which is "creating counterpoints"
"Counterpoint is loosely defined as an element of a scene that is set up in contrast to or relationship with another element. For example, one element can be static and the other motion-blurred, creating contrast between the two; contrast can also be achieved using color, tone, or position. Or, the two elements can relate to one another, such as when elements converge in a scene in a pleasing way. Counterpoint can be used to create drama or tension in an image, or sometimes the exact opposite"

Sounds interesting, casil... I'll vote for that.

For the level one, my suggestion is "By the Numbers" Photograph something that includes a number in some way.

Ok Guys - Your suggestions win - merging posts and editing thread titles now. thx Marko

Cool! I like this one, Marko. Why is 5 so significant, I wonder?

08-15-2011, 07:44 AM
No idea actually, I was just looking for numbers for the assignment :)

Nich catch Marko. Fits the monthly assignment perfectly.

Ok, my turn: 33
I hope you gonna like it.
The brightness is at 0.33 :) I used the 50mm @1.8 and a reflector on silver side.

Nice, Lovin. I like the way only the 33 seems to be in focus on any side.

08-16-2011, 01:26 PM
I agree - Nice one Lovin!

okay, here's my take-

I put this in because phones are supposed to have numbers but this is so old it doesn't. So the lack of numbers was what was interesting to me. :)

So far some nice shots. Like the phone irony.

Here is mine. Happened to be walking by a buddies pool table and remembered the theme.
