Just putting up a post to get a list started.
Here's mine:
-Anything Red
-The look of love/love is" is in keeping with the Hallmark Holiday...define what love is for you via an image.
-Frame within a frame find an images framed within the frame of something else
-Song titles- find photo ops/images that suggest the title of a song....



I think Bambi had a cool idea too but I can't remember what it was.

That's my input anyhow.....

Red is good! It is for romance, Valentine's Day or Canada at the Olympics or the Flames or for bonus points "On Red" ala:

Bike On Red Door on Flickr - Photo Sharing! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/flioukas/2255172606/)

Strollmo on Flickr - Photo Sharing! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobbdobbs/4114935069/in/pool-1245888@N21)

it would be neat to see all the interpretations of 'red' on this one!!!

Forgive me these suggestions have been done before...

I like the red idea but here are some others if everyone is not on board with it

We could do 'Selective Colorization' or 'Me'

The selective colorization is self explanitory but the 'me' topic could be fun...it wouldn't have to be a portrait, that is if you didn't want it to be. It could be a shot that is distinctly you. ie freckles, smile, eyes, birthmark, bellybutton :P be creative!

I think Bambi had a cool idea too but I can't remember what it was.

That's my input anyhow.....

at first I drew a blank and then I remembered! It was from the Sand Dragon thread http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f11/sand-drangon-6880.html#post48328 and my idea was to take a picture of something that looks like something else.


it would be neat to see all the interpretations of 'red' on this one!!!

From Rooster Teeth's Red vs Blue Halo parody...

"It's not pink, it's light red!"

I like the red idea and the me idea.

Oh pleeeeeease don't lets do what very other photo forum in the world is doing and have a Valentines theme again!! :wall-an:

We did red last Feb too as part of the romance theme.

How about something to illustrate a feeling or mood or concept?

Casil mentioned songs ... what about someone picks a song and we have to create a photo as cover shot for the album?

How about a compromise with colours? We could make
- colour keys (here everyone can work with his favourite colour – red, green, blue … ;-))

My other suggestions would be:
- Kids view of the world
- nature oddities (like the sand dragon)

I'm kinda up for the song title one myself...we could go thru our Ipods/music collection and find interesting images to match.

Ie... "Here's a Bridge Over Troubled Waters" by Simon and Garfunkel

I am just thinking it might be more fun to do something a little more creative and fun other than red or valentines...besides this year I am boycotting the greeting card holiday! :sad:

oh thank god! I'm not the only one who doesn't get into Valentines day!


oh thank god! I'm not the only one who doesn't get into Valentines day!
I don't like the commercialization. Valentines Day was for your girlfriend ... to win her love ... not to extract money out of your pocket every year after that for the retail industry. I gave my wife a Valentine Days card, toy Teddy Bear (she still has it 27 years later) and a necklace a few months after I met her ... we were 17. Never given her a Valentines anything since. It would diminish that day.

I didn't mind doing Valentines once but I think we can be more creative. I quite like the themes that give people room to use their imagination.

just a theme idea, could be for another future monthly assignment:
Au Naturel - a photo where the subject is natural, not man-made, and the image itself must be posted au naturel, as in no post-processing (with the exception of RAW shooters doing basic global colour/contrast/sharpening adjustments in pp like the ones you could do in camera if shooting jpegs) and NO CROPPING. And you would be encouraged to avoid stripping the metadata out prior to posting to show you got nothing to hide (not that we aren't all a trustworthy bunch).
I think it would be a fun exercise and force us to really pay attention to composition and exposure etc at time of capture.

I thought for a minute F8 was going to suggest nudism and the world isn't ready for that

Me too. I thought 'Here we go ... time to run down to the train station and take shots of people in their underpants! '

LOL! Yeah nude self portrait HDR'd panoramas stitched together out of multiple macros! we want to see every hair, every wrinkle!

I could shoot all the fat, hairy, foul-mouthed CPR Railway guys that are in the classroom accross the hall...then I would go downstairs and shoot all the skinny hairless autobody mechanics that are in the classrooms downstairs. No offense to any train conductor or body mechanics out there.

Side note...they just opened the new classroom this year for Rehab therapy assistants. Was it a SAIT clever marketing plan to combine all the rehabilitation students (aka mostly young girls) who practice feeling each other's bodies while in various stages of undress 3 times a week in the same building as the train conductor and autobody school?

Hmmmm...I have to wonder...found out today that these guys apparently like to leer into the classroom and word has gotten about all the action going on in our class.
I think am going to insist the instructor start shutting the door.

What about Emotion?

Pictures that convey an emotion or capture a mood....could get those creative juices flowing...:thumbup:

Casil,

I do feel for you about guys leering at you. Now you ask how would a guy know how this feels. I once was helping take down an art show and the large paintings were suspended from the ceiling at angles to view from bellow. I had to climb the ladder to lower these down. The next event in the space was the annual gay ball, I kept hearing comment from the 'guys' about my ass. I don't think I have ever made an unwelcome comment to a lady since, that was 30 years ago and it still gives me the creeps.

Thanks Greg...I don't think they are leering at me necessarily (I'm soon to be 45 and mostly everyone else there is well under 30...and quite perky...lol) but it's the young 20 something girls that creeps me out.
It's not in the best area of town either....quite the industiral area by the Barlow c-train station. with no campus safewalk and early morning go to school in the dark starts. Now that I know this leering bit, I gotta wonder what the hell SAIT was thinking with this new classroom?

I take it the autobody shop isn't part of the T&T building anymore?

If it's like university or hospitals at all, it's all about the politics of space!!

I guess...lol...anyhow sorry to get a bit :offtopic:here...back to ideas.

I also thought about Depth of field as well...especially shallow...or bokeh.

I like f8's idea too but I think that might work better (for me anyhow) further into the spring/summer season in the GWN (Great White North)when there is more out there to photograph that isn't snow...

So far the consensus seems to lean toward red or song themes/covers

There are loads of watery thing to photograph inside and out. (I apologise if this has been done in the past, I am new here...)

Or the opposite. A Before/After image, where you show the original and the processed image.

Ok. It's like Feb 1st! We have to make up our minds

I've been watching this thread but not really coming up with any good ideas myself. I'll vote song themes which I guess makes at least 2 of us. Anyone else?


There are loads of watery thing to photograph inside and out. (I apologise if this has been done in the past, I am new here...)

Not a bad idea, Richard, however, just about all the water in my area is frozen and, frankly, I'm getting tired of it :(

MA was up for song themes/covers also I believe. :thumbup:

Sounds like a goer...

There's more chat than suggestions in this thread :D....
But it seems to me that song themes has just as much support as RED which a few people are strongly against......

So song themes it is. Rather than choosing 1 song dictatorially, or waiting for everyone to agree. Let's keep it open and just say song themes/covers. members should NAME the song in the post though.

This is going to be a FABULOUSLY creative challenge. I can feel it :highfive:

Merging suggestion posts now. Thanks everyone!

Ok then everybody...the theme this month is - Song titles - Images that suggest a song's title. Here's a great example using casil's image: Here's a Bridge Over Troubled Waters" by Simon and Garfunkel.

IF the song is not well known, then maybe post a link to it on youtube or another site with a link to the song. Just a suggestion...
Just found another great site for finding songs that might not be familiar. http://listen.grooveshark.com/

And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

It's Not Easy Being Green - Kermit the Frog

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be

I don't want to be a stick in the mud but I am wondering though, have we completely abandoned the idea of actually taking photos within the month of the challenge? Most of these look like they were pulled out of the archives rather than taken in the last couple of days. :o

You didn't say anything wrong Iggy ... I was thinking the same thing ... " A lot of photos so quickly ... are they all new photos? The monthly assignment is supposed to be for photos taken specifically for the assignment, not dragging up old ones and using them "

However, nobodys going to worry if you do drag up an old one and use it ... I've done that, and made it known I did.

02-04-2010, 05:48 PM
Some of us are out taking photos a few hours every week, on a number of different topics and formats, so if I happen to take a photo of a night time scene just before the assignment of photos taken at night , should I go back and take the same photo over again just so my exif data makes everyone happy? I had the "I will follow you into the dark" file sitting in LR for a few days and finally decided to edit it and while doing so was reminded of the "Death Cab For Cutie" song. So in order to qualify for the assignment I should go out and reshoot the photo? My preface to the those two photos said when they were taken, I wasn't trying to fool anyone. This was a fun theme now it's kind of not so fun anymore. :( If people were not so busy pointing fingers, they might get some fun out of it as well.

and for you Rush fans:

The Trees


There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunligh
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(and they’re quite convinced they’re right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can’t help their feelings
If they like the way they’re made
And they wonder why the maples
Can’t be happy in their shade?

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream `oppression!`
And the oaks, just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
’the oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light’
Now there’s no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet,
Axe,
And saw ...

Hey, JAS. Seriously, I wasn't trying to point fingers at anyone or ruin it for anyone. As Marko corrected me it's optional which was my misunderstanding. I was just a bit surprised at seeing a couple which were obviously summer time photos in February. Again, sorry if I offended you, it was not my intention.:goodvibes:goodvibes

Have a really good thought for this but need to set it up. It will happen but for now,

Taken last summer and not the best shot ever but I love this pic. Reminds me of better times. The car is gone now but thank God Kyanne (in black) is still around.

Hey AntZ ... a self portrait! Getting clean this morning after a ride in the rain?

Nope. A purposeful setup for the song title. I set the camera up and had Ali push the button while I did the "getting wet". This is the closest thing to a Self Portrait I have ever shared. (Can it be called a self portrait if someone else pushes the button?) I'm not sure that I quite pulled it off, but I did everything I could in post to get the rain to show up more.

I did think about doing Dio - Naked in the Rain :)

It's a cheesy song but it came into my head last night when I took these with the canon G11. (Fairly impressed with the G11 btw)

"Ooo, you're givin' me the fever tonight
I don't wanna give in
I'd be playin' with fire
You forget, I've seen you work before
Take `em straight to the top
Leave `em cryin' for more
I've seen you burn `em before
Chorus:

Fire and Ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and Ice
I wanna give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart
You'll just tear it apart ......."

There's a yellow rose in Texas, That I am going to see,
Nobody else could miss her, Not half as much as me.
She cried so when I left her It like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, We nevermore will part.

She's the sweetest little rosebud That Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, They sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Clementine, And sing of Rosalee,
But the YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS Is the only girl for me.

Thanks Jimmy...I used to feel like that too but I figure what the heck, the worst they can say is no which is totally their perogative.:) Most people say yes and sometimes I give them a few $$ for letting me, especially if they look like they need it. Gord was selling the street newspaper (instead of panhandling - people can buy a paper for whatever they choose to give him) so I gave him $5 and told him to sell my paper to someone else. :)

My little Healey is a gentle soul. I bought him originally to keep Sadie company but she did not like him and chased him away whenever he crossed her line of sight. Healey is a shy little guy not the tame people bird Sadie is and will not completely tame down. He is also a feather plucker. Healey loves chimes and bells. Despite the fact that he is basically alone in this world, he loves to sit up in his orbiter or on his little swing and sing. Why does he sing? Because he has a song.

I hate making lists..but that song is on my top five of favourite songs (prayers/peoms) on planet earth. I've seen it performed thrice on this L. Cohen tour. I'm a sensitive dude and caught myself weeping the first time I saw it live. (I know what a wimp, but I'm big now so who cares :)).
It's one of my favorite songs to play on guitar as well. There is some dude named Antony that covered this song..unbelievable. Oh yeah, I'm a huge Leonard Cohen fan. :)

And hey ... Leanne agrees with me! Valentines Day was originally for a person to ask the one they wanted to be their boyfriend or girlfriend to commit to the relationship. It's a one off thing. I simply refuse to be conned by the commercialism of it year after year. That, and I don't need a special day to tell Leanne I love her or give her a gift, I can and do that at will ;)

oookay-let's get back on track:

Puff the Magic Dragon
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff,
and brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. Oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail,
Noble kings and princes would bow whene'er they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name. Oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.
Without his life-long friend, Puff could not be brave,
So Puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave. Oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

this song always made me cry as child, so imagine how thrilled I was to see that Puff has found a home where children will forever enjoy him: in their school playground:

Broken switches, broken gates,
Broken dishes, broken parts,
Streets are filled with broken hearts.
Broken words never meant to be spoken,
Everything is broken.

love Alan Parsons. Still working on my photos from this weekend's beach shot. As soon as I saw this I tought of 'Farewell to Nova Scotia'

"farewell to Nova Scotia, you sea-bound coast
let your mountains dark and dreary be
for when i am far away on the briny ocean tossed
will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?"

The Rose, by Bette Middler (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR6okRuOLc8) - I can't believe it hasn't been done yet (and if it has; I'm sorry I missed it) I'll be honest, I have a different interpretation than this, but I got fooling around with the 'brollys & OCF last night trying to see what I could do to bring the colour & contrast out of the 2 roses.

And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"
So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"
Whoa-oh-oh

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

In the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

Stompin' Tom and 'The Good Ole Hockey Game':

Hello out there we're on the air it's hockey night tonite
Tension grows the whistle blows-& the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps and the players bump and the fans all go insane
Someone roars "Bobby scores!" at the good ole hockey game
Chorus:
Oh the good ole hockey game
is the best game you can name
And the best game you can name is the good ole hockey game
2nd period:
Where players dash with skates aflash the home team trails behind
But they grab the puck and go bursting up and they're down across the line
They storm the crease like bumble bees they travel like a burning flame
We see them slide the puck inside -It's a "1-1" hockey game!
Chorus:
3rd period: last game in the playoffs, too...
Oh take me where the hockey players face off down the rink-
And the Stanley Cup is all filled up for the chaps who win the drink-
Now the final flick of the hockey stick and a one gigantic scream-
The puck is in! The home team wins! The good ole hockey game!

Mary you're covered in roses, you're covered in ashes
You're covered in rain
You're covered in babies, you're covered in slashes
You're covered in wilderness, you're covered in stains
You cast aside the sheet, you cast aside the shroud
Of another man, who served the world proud
You greet another son, you lose another one
On some sunny day and always stay, Mary

Jesus says Mother I couldn't stay another day longer
Flys right by me and leaves a kiss upon her face
While the angels are singin' his praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

Yeah or dropping acid. But really it is as backwards as going out on a sunny Canadian winter day with an umbrella. In some versions of the song it's clearer but they do sing the words backwards at the very end

OK I feel the need to explain this one :)
I was taking some pics for an photo assignment "Red" and my 8yr old daughter was wearing this hoody with this print. I thought there must be a song with broken heart in it. When I asked my daughter says "Achy Breaky Heart". You see she is a big fan of Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray's daughter.

Here's probably my last one (although I have until Midnight :)):
When the Levee Breaks, by Led Zepplin (love Led Zepplin)

f it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break, [X2]
When The Levee Breaks I'll have no place to stay.

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan, [X2]
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home,
Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well.

Don't it make you feel bad
When you're tryin' to find your way home,
You don't know which way to go?
If you're goin' down South
They go no work to do,
If you don't know about Chicago.

Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
Now, cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move.

All last night sat on the levee and moaned, [X2]
Thinkin' about me baby and my happy home.
Going, going to Chicago... Going to Chicago... Sorry but I can't take you...
Going down... going down now... going down....
