    After a bit of discussion it seems like there is interest in giving this a try. So to start it off, I will post the first "assigment". The assignment is to go and take pics of a particular theme, and then come back and post there in this thread, for discussion, comments, and even critiques if you choose. After a week a new assignment will be posted with a different theme. Pretty simple really, just a way to encourage us to get out there and shoot with specifics in mind! So with all that being said, the theme for this week is: WET

    Now get out there and take some pics :)

    Good idea, Amanda!

    And maybe if this idea really takes off, I'll try and convince the Chase-meister to make another sub-forum! :)

    I would like to suggest that in addition to subject description oriented assignments (such as wet, blue, mysterious, etc...), that we occasionally throw in some technical assignments such as:

    short DOF: wide aperture

    long DOF: narrow aperture

    freeze action: fast shutter speed

    blur: slow shutter speed

    3 times of day: the exact same composition, but taken in 3 different lighting situations

    fill the frame: subject must be composed so that it intersects with at least 3 sides of the image frame

    triptych: 3 photos shot with the intention of being displayed together

    3 focal lengths: take three photos with three different focal lengths (preferably wide, normal, and long), attempt to keep the composition as similar as possible in each photo

    Hey everyone, this is my first post here. :D This sounds like a great idea, something I'd love to participate in. I really like the idea of having technical assignments too. It'd be a great way for beginners (like me) to learn.
    Anyhoo, I'm off to shoot some pictures. :D
