First post - been reading for a short time and enjoyed the honesty and involvement of many of the members here, thought I'd contribute a little as well. As part of a project for school, we are to select a theme and develop a collection (~20 pictures) based around it. I was originally going to do "contrast" - differences between items rather then the color property. It began to get rather difficult to complete the theme, so I decided to change it to "centered simplicity" - simple images with the main subject of focus centered. Here is a sample of some images so far. All shots are with a Nikon D3, 50/1.8, and series of speedlights / studiolights. Please feel free to comment on the theme, the pictures as they fit the theme, or the pictures themselves. Some additional photos are located on my flickr (http://www.flickr.com/camhabib).
