Please read the Rules and Objectives before you submit a photo for this Assignment.

The April Assignment is “UNUSUAL PERSPECTIVE”.

In order to submit an entry for this month’s assignment, you must change your perspective. What do I mean?

Many of us shoot standing up, pointing our cameras on a plane perpendicular to our position. Try something different or unusual – lie on the ground shooting up; climb a tree and shoot down; etc. One example - think like a small animal or very young child – shoot what they might see. The point is to get you to change your perspective. I want well-conceived, artistic shots. Please put some thought into what you are going to shoot, how you are going to compose it, and the perspective from which you will execute the shot. Depending on your angle, you may need to be cognizant of your foregrounds and/or your backgrounds. Does DOF need to be considered in the composition?

There are no restrictions other than the image must (a) be an artistic image shot from an unusual perspective and (b) be taken during the month of April .

Please:

• Be imaginative and go for the unusual shot. After all, that’s what makes this fun!!!
• Do not use a shot in your archive – the whole point of this exercise is that it is an assignment.
• Submit only artistic shots. Naturally, we want to see your very best work with regard to subject matter and composition - translation – snapshots are not permitted.
• Include shooting data, and ideally, please include your thinking behind the scene – what were you trying/hoping to capture, and did you succeed?

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this assignment!

Good luck!!!
