Assignments are a way for everyone who attends our meetings to participate by displaying up to two photos. The assignments usually are made with the idea of teaching a photography lesson, although a few are just for fun. Each photo will be critiqued at the meeting, and we hope that everyone will feel comfortable making comments. Digital photos are preferred but prints will be accepted. You can e-mail digital photos to email@example.com the day before the meeting or earlier.
Hints and Suggestions
You can make a list for your wallet by printing this page and cutting out the table.
Silhouettes - Looking into the light, be sure you have a clean lens to reduce flares.
Lonely - Your interpretation...
Deep depth of field - Use a small f stop (like f 16 or f 22) to get everything in focus from front to back.
Through water - Use a glass or another container of water and try different f stops. Or shoot through rain, a hose, etc.
SOOC - Do not modify your image in any way, but you can try different camera settings for various effects.
Leading lines - A line, like a river or a road, leads to your main subject.
Motion - Try different shutter speeds. A longer exposure will blur your subject. Try panning with a moving object.
Snow - You may have to add a little exposure to eliminate gray snow.
Distortion - Try wide angle lenses, reflections, etc.
Wildlife refuge - Bear Lake or other refuges. Could be scenery or wildlife. Maybe a field trip?
