    To kick things off, here are few thoughts I had.

    Photo Essay - 3-5 photos of a common theme to tell a story

    Hot / Cold

    "Running with scissors" - a.k.a. taking a risk and breaking the rules

    "Shooting Through" - inspired by Marko's Podcast 136 - Lube up your Old Filters | Photography.ca. Taking photos with something over the lens (vaseline/stockings/ plastic/ fly wire etc) or even shooting through a fence/ foliage etc

    Something to consider ......

    1. I find sometimes that I like the theme but doesn't fit in for me that month but I would still like to do it. I was thinking of a couple of possibilities.
    a) Have a list of assignments and you have the year to choose from the list and take pictures to submit.
    b) Perhaps the year is too long so maybe it could be quarterly assignments

    2. The argument against 1. would be that people have a tendency to procrastinate and having a deadline tends to encourage you to get out and do it. So maybe monthly actually is better.

    Thx for starting this off RM!

    I agree with this instinct

    I like all of your suggestions RM and I encourage members to leave many additional suggestions. The best suggestions IMO are those that have wide appeal and do not require extra/expensive equipment.

    Here are some additional suggestions

    - Impact
    - Black on white OR white on black
    - 2 second exposure

    I'm going to make an early New Year's Resolution to get my butt out and shoot each and every assignment next year. So, let's think up some good assignments. Additionally, I challenge everyone on the board to make sure they submit at least 1 photo to the assignment thread. If I can get one into the assignment then you can too. Let's push each other to be better this coming year.

    My suggestions to add to the list:

    - Inspired by a song/book/movie title (it's an old favourite but I enjoyed doing it the last time)
    - Lit with flash (Let's play with flash, on camera or off camera)
    - Natural light only (the counterpoint to flash)
    - beginnings/endings - your interpretation
    - technology
    - Inception (Sort of based on the movie that has dreams within dreams, it could be things inside of things, kaleidoscope-ish)

    We are missing suggestions - we need at least 24 to do the whole year....we have 17.

    This would be the last day for input.

    Tomorrow I''ll choose the themes for the year (or for most of the year) based on the input from this thread.
    Thx!
