    For what its worth as a complete newbie to both this forum and photograhphy..that part of the forum was the part that interested/intrests me the most..So much so I was still up at 2 aclock this morning taking pics of a blooming pool table in my basement to post there lol....as a newbie I find the challange to produce a photo within certain parameters helps me focus on the little things rather than running around like a headless chicken with no real focus.....for what its worth.

    Agreed that was one of the first forums I wanted to post in but at the time no one was doing anything with it and I felt bad resurrecting threads that had been dead for 2 years.

    Idea:

    A separate assignments forum where you would have one forum for technical assignments and one for subject assignments.

    Lol you really don't need to worry about that, a few months ago jeff canes went threw and litterally bumped every thread in there. +fifty come odd posts all in one fell swoop with one word...
    That was pretty much the end of it though after that it died out completely. After the one last try to keep it alive did not work I think he just kinda washed his hands of it.

    Making it fly is going to be the result of keeping new and interesting assignments comming on a bi-weekly basis, lack of new and unsual but meetable challenges is the original cause of death to my knowledge.

    Making the forum more visable will only do so much, something new has to come up on that bi-weekly basis to keep the attention.

    Let's post two new assignments on 1/21. I'd really like to see this take off again to help out the newbies - myself included!

    We do need a header for the assignments. We should make 1 assignment technical the other assignment subject matter. Bonus points if you get both assignments in the same image.

    Sounds fine. One technical and one artistic and or subject matter. Thanks for your help with this.

    '08 Technical Assignment #2 - Shallow Depth of Field

    This might work. Then we just change the # and technical in the header.
