    try to take a picture of something that is beautiful and make it look ugly. Anybody can take a picture of something that is ugly and make it an interesting and beautiful shot, but I've never seen it done the other way.

    i don't mean an bad photo, as in out of focus, or whatever, but make something a good photo, only portray the subject as ugly. for example (an example i might not try myself) take a picture of a very attractive person yelling at a child. or something like that..

    I did this when I got my first dSLR and I think it was the best photography-related learning experience I've had.

    Choose an object (it can be anything - a chair, a shoe, your coffee pot...) and photograph it from 5 different perspectives. Do this with one object every day for a week. This exercise will teach you a lot about composition, and force you to look at things in different ways, and it's great for getting you to really look at details, too.

    I might suggest this as a challenge here, just so I have an excuse to do it again!
