View Full Version : March 2012 Photography Assignment - Bright Colour

02-29-2012, 07:50 AM
Well, tomorrow is March 1st.... any ideas for March's assignment?

I'll throw something out.....but feel 100% free to suggest your own possible topics. Thx - Marko

Ice for the regular assignment

F - 16 or smaller for the level 2 assignment.

I'd love to see some Bright Colour. any kind. I'm getting a bit desperate for it.

what about silhouettes as an option?

Don't know if it has been done before but what about "repetition"

I have no strong attachment to the idea, but am just throwing it out there

Not sure if I will end up participating but silhouettes I think is a great idea, just an opinion for whatever it is worth.

I'd love to see some Bright Colour. any kind. I'm getting a bit desperate for it.

Says she who just got back from the sunny skies of Arizona. I like bright colour but where in the heck would you find it around here this time of year?

I hate the idea of ice... I'm getting tired of winter :(

Silhouettes are cool as well. I'm flexible. :)

I'm not fond of ice either. Iggy, maybe the only ice you could handle right now is in a drink.

Silhouettes would be ok with me. Interesting timing. I was just working on a silhouette. This was from the first pictures I took with my DSLR about 3 yrs ago. I may post tomorrow night. (Obviously not eligible for the assignment)

Ok then - Bright Colour will be the regular assignment and Silhouettes will be the level 2 assignment (http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f34/march-2012-silhouettes-17374.html).
merging posts now. thx marko

And looks like I'll start this one too... how about "Carnation"

okay, since this was my idea I need to contribute. However, I am cheating because I haven't taken any photos this month. I'm still working on my Ariz. shots. Haven't even made it to the second memory card. But here are some wildflowers in the desert:

This is a bit of a cheat in that I shot it before the assignment, but it is only fairly recent.

This is from my daughter's soccer game Sunday evening. I decided to shoot other girls on the team and give to the parents. It just so happened, the girl in the lime green uniform (other team) goes to my daughter's school and we ran into them. I told her I have a great shot of her daughter (thats why I Gaus. blurred everything but her). I like the lime green uni's

Hey, I am new here and thought that this was a great place to start posting with this pic of bright colours. Taken during Montreal's Art Souterrain exhibit.
