"November, 2013 Assignment - Shooting Down"
Sat 02-Nov-13 10:11 AM by rmigliaccio

Barrington, US
          

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

The November Assignment is “Shooting Down”.

What goes up...must come down. Last month we shot up, so it would make sense that this month we do the opposite - shoot down.

Therefore, this month's assignment requires you to point your camera down - at least 45 degrees below horizontal. Most of the time we are focused (pun intended) on what is happening in front of us. This month, keep your eyes on what is going on below you - there might be an artistic, wall worthy image just waiting to be captured!

There are no other restrictions except that your image(s) MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER, 2013. I have noticed that some have used archived photos to satisfy an assignment (i.e. photos NOT taken during the month of the assignment). Using images taken prior to November of 2013 is NOT PERMITTED and will be deleted. Please honor the rules of the assignment.

As always, I emphasize “artistic”. Strive to be different; let your artistic juices flow when composing your image. Is the image you post for this assignment one you would be willing to frame and hang on your wall?? Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the assignment, and creativity just to name a few.

Also, over the course of the month, you may post no more than four (4) images. I want you to be discriminating in the selection of images you post for this assignment – PLEASE POST ONLY YOUR BEST SHOTS!!!

Also, 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?

As discussed here, the top five images will be selected by the previous month’s winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to our new Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this assignment!

Good luck!!!

I took a walk in the woods this morning. I liked the simplicity of the leaves and tree trunks,with the shadows of the other trees cutting across the image.

As I could not use a shot from my archive and did not have an opportunity to find something completely original, I have decided to take a simple image and then make it horribly relevant



D700, 50/1.8D, ISO 3200, 1/125, f/3.2.

The image was developed in LR4.4, then I played with it in CS6. As it was rather framed with the center of the fibonacci spiral near the bottom of the stairwell (first angle from it, actually), I centered copies of the frame, blown up, there, and rotated them before playing with opacity.

The result has me swaying
