    Default June 2011 photography assignment - Breaking the rules

    Anyone got any ideas for the level 1 and level 2 assignments?

    Here's one idea though I'm not sure whether it's level one or 2.
    Creative use of hard light.

    anyone think that's good or have additional suggestions?

    A tough one, but what about creative sef-portrait ala these examples here:

    http://www.digital-photography-schoo...self-portraits

    I was wondering about photos that break the rules: like not using the ROT, having blown out highlights or any of the other rules

    +1 for "A tough one, but what about creative sef-portrait ala these examples here:"
    i think that should be level 2.

    Any other ideas for regular assignment? I like Breaking the rules? anyone else?
    Thx - Marko

    I agree with Marko on the level 2 being more appropriate for the creative self portrait and breaking the rules could be fun and creative for the regular assignment!

    Ok members the regular assignment is breaking the rules.

    Some traditional rules that people can choose to break:
    - Rule of thirds
    - Tonal quality rules (good detail from white to black)
    - overexposure/underexposure
    - Compositional rules.

    It would be nice if the shots still "work" but feel free to break that rule as well, lol.

    OK then who will post first?

    This was an already strong backlit image ... but I found it lacked some punch or a center element. I decided to make it even more abstact by removing color and cranking the constrast.



    Here is the original shot ...

    I like the creativity of these shots so far. Here's one I took yesterday. I tagged along with the NS Photo Guild to a greenhouse. Turns out the person who owns it does sculpture and they are everywhere. This one was on a hill of native flowers and plants. I took a few and didn't like them at all. I then wandered into the woods and when I came out I saw this. It breaks the rule of thirds- everything is pretty centred but I don't think it could have been shot any other way.

    thanks Marko. Here's some use of underexposure:

    Well, no rule of thirds in this one. The subject is very low in the frame.
