Stop taking Pictures, start creating them!
Topic #1 Composition:
Look for pattern-filled compositions or create them. Shoot from all angles; above, below, behind, beside, etc.
Topic #2 The Exposure Triangle:
Continue to play with the Basic Mode Zones on your camera.
ASSIGNMENT: send me one picture with patterns, two showing DOF (depth of field, one with a narrow dof and one with a big dof), 2 or 3 for 'Picture of the Week'.
Please be sure to label which pictures are for assignments and which are for 'Pictures of the Week'. If I have to use my ESP powers, they have been known to be faulty.
