2010 Fall Update

It's been a long run since we started. I think we covered most of the basic stuff.
From now on I'm primarily going to concentrate on portraiture/lighting/postprocessing techniques relevant for photographing human subjects.
If it's not your cup of tea - the older assignments are still "open" and you're welcome to participate in any of those (and I promise to respond:-)

Fresh pictures only (as in "no archives" unless explicitly requested).
No "unauthorized equipment" usage - if not sure, ask.

Weekly Assignments

We have weekly assignments going on.

This post serves as a common ground for all of them, as well as the index chart.

Basic rules
  1. Follow the assignment subject.
    If the subject is "red", posting a generally bluish image and explaining that you, in fact, were thinking of red while pressing the shutter may not necessarily cut the cake...
  2. There are no winners, no voting, no competition.
    Hence there is no need to be afraid to post a not-centerfold quality image as long as it complies with Rule #1
  3. Fresh images only, please.
    Please don't use your archives even if they match the subject perfectly.
    The idea is to "go and shoot".
  4. While there are no entry deadlines, new assignments normally come out around Friday, so you have the full weekend and the rest of the next week to shoot it - that is, before the next one comes out and becomes the hot shot of the week:-).
  5. You're welcome to participate in the "past" assignments in case you've missed them, but your pictures still have to be freshly taken.
    Meaning: you should only submit a picture that you took AFTER you became aware of the particular assignment.
    And since we getting a new subject each week, it may be a good idea to start fresh and catch up later.
  6. Post processing is OK (in moderation, unless otherwise specified:-).
    We all want to see and produce a good looking image regardless of the assignment subject. Dust removal, distracting objects cloning, curves, layers...
    All in all, process as your heart desires, but try not to cheat: if a subject is "red", creating a red overlay in PS over a midday seascape is not considered "rule #1 compliance" :-)
