    Default January 2012 photography assignment - "One"

    Ok members - whose got ideas for a regular and level 2 assignment for this month.

    Just throwing these out - feel free to support them or suggest other ideas.
    The ideas with the most support in the next 24 hours become this month's theme.

    Regular assignment suggestions;
    - Close up faces
    - white

    Level 2 suggestion;
    - white on white
    - black on black

    How about a theme based on Michaelaw's image "You're Just Fakin It"

    Create an image using the same title

    One idea I thought of was since this is the start of a new year, it is out with the old and in with the new. So my idea is 'renewal'.

    We are gonna need a few more people's input for a democratic choice

    If we're suggesting a few of our own (I haven't been here long; these may have been done) :

    Time
    Fences
    Food
    Work
    Shadows

    If we're selecting something already suggested, my vote is for "white" and "white on white"

    I'm thinking I'd like to try and work the themes around photographic ideas rather than just random stuff. Just my but I'd like to go with "Fill the Frame" in an effort to get better with composition.

    How about "one" --- taking it literally or figuratively. Totally open to interpretation. (Since this is the first month of a new year.)

    I like this one better than my "You Just Fakin it" theme

    Ok then seems to be tie for support on regular and level 2 assignment.....so admin makes the call.

    The regular assignment will be "One"
    The level 2 assignment will be white on white (this is a photographic idea, no?....hope u approve Iggy)

    OK, I will go first. I used a little leeway and went with "Won", not "One"

    The three photos I am submitting for this month's assignment each have their own little bit of a story. The original idea was to take the middle photo while the snow fell. A few days ago, the snow did fall, but by the time I was able to load gear and make the trip out, the National Cemetery was closed. I had time today, and not knowing when the next snow would fall, I went ahead and made the shot - even though it was not was what was in my mind's eye.

    The first photo was the first thing I saw when I approached the grounds. I found it quite interesting that there was only "one" headstone facing south.

    The middle photo -(concept photo) actually was the brain child of the man in the photo. When I told him what the assignment was, he suggested the National Cemetery and the poignancy of "one" man giving his life for the benefit of many. I wanted the impact of the snowfall, but it was not to be. The flag that he has draped over the headstone flew at our nation's capital in Washington, D.C. USA in honor of his mother who passed away when he was 18.

    The last photo -- same story as the first photo, it was the last headstone I saw as I was leaving the grounds. It said everything it could possible say about the number "one".

    That said, what I really wanted to photograph for this assignment was a woman, nude - with a single mastectomy/leaving "one". I could not find a willing participant.

    I did these macros for this assignment, and noticed that they look quite different when reversed. Is it just me, or do others see the difference? These are the exact same photos, only rotated 180°.

    The image with the #1 at the top, the key sticks up (true image), but the image with the #1 at the bottom, the keys seem to be lower on the flat part than the edges of the keys
