The quick-and-dirty… I have nine, weekly photography assignments to complete. Wanna tag along? You can do all nine or only the ones that interest you. I’ll post a “(date) Photo Assignment: ___________” on a Sunday evening and we’ll share our pictures the following Saturday morning at, um... 9am EST? ----------- Where this comes from… My father-in-law, Dave, was a professional photographer in NYC back in the day. His forte was shooting ads. He refers to himself a “picture maker” not a "picture taker." He’s retired now and occasionally teaches a class at the local community college. I always have a digital camera in my hip pocket and snap a lot of pictures. In a not-so-subtle attempt to improve my eye, he recently sent me the assignments he gives his class. I’m on assignment #2. This week’s project, should you choose to play, is “Friendship.” I asked him to elaborate and he went mum other than to say “shoot anything but two people smiling at me.” Use a SLR, DSR, cell phone, professional equipment… whatever. It’s about creativity rather than quality. Let me know if you are interested.
