    Default March 2010 - Photography assignment - Light & shadow

    After seeing Michael's post about signs, I though what a great idea photograph a sign that is amusing or strange.

    Signs is cool but I'm wondering if they have to be funny? Might be hard for people in smaller communities?

    Doesn't have to be funny, but most small places have the quirky sign in some shop window.

    other ideas I had are:
    1. humour in general
    2. indoor shots
    3. alphabet (maybe this was done before?)
    4. book cover illustrations (JJJ's raven picture made me think of this)
    5. street photography



    Book cover could be as much fun as song titles.

    I like book cover titles.
    I'll throw in a few suggestions just to make things interesting....We can use them in other months also:
    Black and white
    Juxtaposition
    Symmetry
    Repeating Patterns
    Light and Shadow

    Creating a still life where lighting is a key factor, i.e. creates texture, form, mood. Here is an example of one photographer setting up still lifes to emulate the Dutch Masters paintings for example:
    beauty comma: , dutch masters?

    I'm into book covers and light and shadow.


    Many of these other ideas are good too but lack wide appeal. I'll always go with the majority (wide appeal or not)... but it's SO much nicer when the suggestion has wide appeal, because we'll get many many many more posts that way. This month is a GREAT example.

    I vote for light and shadow as it will cover the 'still lifes where lighting is a key factor' idea as well.

    I would like

    book covers
    or
    humour in general



    Actually I think it would be great if we alternate between a technique style assignment like light and shadow and then the following month something creative like book covers. This way we stretch our abilities in two ways.

    I agree, because honestly I could take just about any photo on my computer right now and in the future and find a book title that it would illustrate.

    Greg makes an excellent point!

    so how do people feel about light and shadow? I know it would be a challenge for me, but that's a good thing

    I'm flexible... I'll go with whatever the group decides.

    Light and shadow work for me...book titles we can do next month if the group decides.

    We could also call it light or shadow.

    this has my vote!!

    Light and shadow has the most support - merging suggestion posts now.

    Thx for all the suggestions everyone!!

    Nice stuff B!
    i took this yesterday on the way home... I know I've photographed her a lot and It's not b/c I am a particularly religious person. She is in a place I like to go and just sit when I have things to work out....I think everyone has one of those places.
    When I was at one of my very lowest moments several months ago...recent split-up. new job, still burn out from the other one, new career/school about to start, I was pretty messed up. I went to this place and just sat not knowing where I was at, or going, or what to do....but I had to try and figure out how to get right with myself. I sat on the bench in front of her and just said to myself please give me some kind of indication that what I am going through right now..... all this change..... is the right path and things will get better if I just hunker down and go through this head long, head first.
    I swear as I am alive today that right after I said this a rabbit popped out of the little bushes in the garden and sat right in front of me about 3 feet away. It wasn't afraid and it didn't run off...but it just sat there and looked at me. So there we all sat, Me, Mary and the rabbit...no one moving...and for some reason I knew that I would be okay. Finally after a few minutes, the rabbit moved on and so did I, literally and figuratively.

    So that's why I like to photograph her.



    Sorry for rambling on....it was just a story I thought I would share.
