Keep Shooting! Photography Assignments (04 Feb 2013)
Be sure to check out the new Keep Shooting! Photography Assignments, every two weeks there is a new one!
photo assignments or contests
Contests - I think should be light hearted, fun & just a little bit of a challenge, something to make us get out & shoot. It'd be interesting to see everyones 'take' on the challenge & then to have you share your thoughts on our entries would be great.
Assignments - Should be tough & make us learn, you'd need to set us strict instructions on what to shoot or how to shoot something & then correct us if we dont do it right!!
The lack of prizes/sponsors certainly is not an issue for me, I'm not here to win a prizes! I'm more than happy that you are willing to take the time & help me learn how be be a better photographer
Don't worry about the lack of prizes Greg, it doesn't bother me anyway. It would be fun and would hopefully get the forum buzzing.
And for the prizes, I don't one bit if we don't have prizes. For me it is just the learning experience that counts.
It is a great way for us to try some shots we never thought of shooting and it will get me motivated to go out and shoot more in general.
Whoever wins the contest get's a full critique of their portfolio via Flickr/500px. Greg could film the critique which may last about half an hour if there's a lot photo's and place it on the internet's for us all to digest!
Doing this would mean both the contest winner and photographer's in general will be able to view the content and hopefully gain some new skill's.
And after the deadline you (greg) pick the best, lets say 10. and you give critics, what you would have done different and what you like about it. and put it in a video on youtube, so that everyone can learn from are mistakes.
i got no chance of winning im crap
But seriously i agree with them up above me, it doesnt matter about prizes just getting a mention is good enough for me ...
Im here to learn and have some fun along the way.
