    Default Assignment ideas for 2015?

    Hi members!

    So it's 2015 already and probably best to make a list of all the assignments now. For a past list of those assignments done thus far - here.

    I'll let this simmer for a few days and then I'll make a new list of 12 regular and 12 level 2 assignments for 2015....as usual though, I prefer the input of members.

    Here are some unused suggestions from the last round and a few off the top of my bald head.....

    What do you think?
    Got new suggestions?


    Thx - looking forward to a new year of assignments!

    Level 1 potential ideas - shapes, clothing, small, cry, air, hair, Eyes, Food, Sense of Scale, Feet, Natural Framing, Low Light / Night, Angles, Circles, Panning, Shadows, Street Photography, Minimalism, Our Changing, Time, Self Portrait, Product, Pets, Toys, Humorous, Long Exposure, Sports, staged, opposites, stillness, breaking the rules, Architecture, low light, red, blue, yellow.

    Level 2 potential ideas -
    Silhouettes, Fog, Dramatic Skies, Moody, Abstracts, Energy, Duality, revealed, extreme close-up, unusual crops, black on black, selective colour when processing, backlight, isolation, dreamy

    Since I brought it up, how about smoke/fog for one

    I am thinking that level one seems to get the most submissions when it is more of a subject type of theme (eg colours, numbers, shapes or specific items). I wonder if it may make it more accessible to more people than concepts or processes.

    from the above list (I haven't separated these out in accordance with my previous comment)

    I also don't think it would be a problem to revisit some old assignments. Many members were not here then, and if they were then I am sure their ideas and photographic abilities and interpretations would have changed in that time.

    some other stray thoughts - interpretations of an egg (idea taken from Freeman Patterson's book) - walking - strangers - black and white - making the mundane interesting - photos from only 1 room in the house (eg bathroom, kitchen) - bridges.

    In the meantime I will keep thinking

    Popular topics in photo sites: food, photo equipment, body parts, levitation, flowers, Lego, liquid splashes, timepieces, multiple exposures.
    My New Years resolution is to do more of these assignments in 2015. I agree with RM, no harm in repeating some of the older assignments.
