    Default assignments criteria

    Hi all,
    My majour interest in joining the forum is to explore different photography techniques and to explore/expand my interests. To that end I would like to see more guidelines on assignments. For example ...... architecture (modern, old, a specific period, etc), macro photography (flowers, insects, jewellery - which is very tricky to photograph), lighting techniques (backlighting, partial lighting, moods), sky shots (airplanes, clouds, trees), water shots, reflections, perspectives, photographing art works. I use the forum to force me to address certain types of different or difficult techniques, especially as they relate to art in photography, and fire up my interest in photographing various subjects.
    Thanks,
    .... john

    Actually, its always been a matter of interpretation. My emphasis has been on thinking outside the box, but if guidance is what you seek then you might ask to collaborate with one of the other members here so you can bounce ideas of one another. Or, just punch the assignment topic into google images and see if you come up something on your own.

    I have to agree...it's been my experience that if the topic is ULTRA precise, nobody posts.

    But when the topic is more open to interpretation people can post AND think outside the box a bit if that's what they like to do. (I also like to do that).
    This month's level 2 assignment is gestures - SO many opportunities there. Even a plant can have a gesture ...

    That said- I like to help out. It's MY PLEASURE to create a SPECIFIC challenge for (or any member) you based on the existing assignments. So if for example 'gestures' is too broad for you personally - PM me at the beginning of the month and I'll give you something concrete gesture-wise to sink your teeth into.

    It's my pleasure to do this anytime or all the time. All you need to do is ask. It's never a hassle or an imposition.

    Hope that may help.

    Thought I would just add this video from Jay Maisel who talks a lot about gesture.




    If you are interested in Jay Maisel at all, you can google him but he has a couple of videos in which Scott spent the day with him which are highly enjoyable but not free.

    Awesome video, JAS.
    I am heading to New Orleans in just a couple hours for some street photography, this is exactly what I needed.

    That video is gold. Awesome share Jas!!!!!

    I've personally seen Maisel talk about 'gesture'. But this wraps it up super-succinctly.
