Hi guys, i offered to step in and help run this a bit. i think it's a a cool concept, and I've learned so much from connections I've made with other photographers on NS over the years.
Quoting LJ.Corrales:Those who are new to this: This is a NS M&A photo group to encourage, grow and get excited about photography. We'll have assignments and goals as photographers every 2-4 weeks. Check out my feeler post for more information regarding the. You will be expected to contribute to most assignments, critiques, and discussions so we can become a community.
Assignment 1 "Who Are You?":
Assignment 2 Composition:
I have a concept that is very simple, yet at the very foundation of photography, composition. We'll set a 2 week timeline for you all to go out and shoot something that you think is well composed. Any subject.
Post the 1-3 photos in this thread and explain why you like the composition you chose.
I'd like to encourage going out and shooting, but if you can't or don't get something you're happy with, old photos are okay.
The last thread was not open to critique, but this week will be. Critique is essential to improving. First thing is first, you need to learn to not take critique personally, use the feedback you get to learn about other people's perspective of your work, sometimes that sucks, but you only get better from it. That said, critique does not have to be negative. However, "nice shot!" or "love it" is not critique. Pick out the specific things that make you like or dislike the photo ie. "Nice shot, I think the centered composition is a bit boring though, maybe getting lower would provide a cleaner background and more interesting perspective."
