    That snake is adorable.
    Haha, thanks. We found a few of them on a gravel path in a prairie reserve. I have a few more pictures of the little guy, but they're all more or less the same as the above, just with the snake in different positions and such.

    I drove for 3.5 hours to the coast, and the only productive thing I did was take this photo (long story). I like how the keel merges with the ground, and the upper boat bit with the sky, but to be honest I'm rather meh about it.

    I like it. It works well in black and white (for the reasons you mentioned), and some decent texture to keep it interesting.

    can anyone teach me to photography? I'm considering picking it as my major (I know I like to take and look at photos), but I don't know any of the technical aspects of photography, especially what kind of camera I'll want. I have a lot of money (around $2,000) to spend on some gear, though I want to buy something good for an entry-level enthusiast.

    The first post of the photo thread should get you going in the right direction.

    Photo Exercise #12 - Composition "Rules" #2 - Rule of Thirds
    Duration: Month of March


    For the next few months, let's practice the basic 'rules' of composition. I put the word rules in quotes because we all know that (1) following these practices does not guarantee a good picture and (2) failing to follow them does not guarantee a bad picture. But it's better to be familiar with how to use these guidelines before deciding to ditch them, so why not practice them?

    For the duration of these assignments, I'll be following this site (http://asp.photo.free.fr/Composition/photoProgramCompMainClass.shtml) as it has a good list of the basic rules of composition as well as some good descriptions and info. Check it out!!

    For the next installment of this series, try the Rule of Thirds. <--(that's a link there, by the way)." Yes the rule of thirds has been hammered into everyone since time immemorial, and yes everyone's sick of it, and no adherence to it does not guarantee a good shot nor does ignoring it make a bad shot. But let's all get over our own personal grudges and see if we can look at the rule with new eyes, and make a masterful shot using its simple guidelines.

    I'm taking this journalism writing class that lately has been all "oh, take pictures for the articles you write!"

    My lab instructor keeps telling everyone "Take pictures with background and foreground subjects. And remember the rule of thirds! You'll get points off if your picture doesn't follow the rule of thirds!"

    It kind of irks me.

    You need to take a stunning picture whose composition would actually be hurt by following the rule of thirds, just to show him (her?).

    Her.

    I would, but I don't think she can look past the rule..

    when it comes to format divisions, I prefer using square breaks from either sides and then the intersections of the diagonal of the whole to get hotspots. Which in the format shown on the page you linked to is very close to thirds, but in other formats it is not.

    Well, it looks like the assignment thread died. Does anyone want to keep doing these? I personally have sucked for participating in my own thread, but if people really want to do the assignment thing, I am happy to keep cranking out the topics.

    What do you all think?

    I definitely will keep on doing it, I honestly forgot about it. It'll keep me taking photos though if we keep it up. Been slacking like crazy lately.

    Photo Exercise #14 - Heat
    Duration: Month of June

    Ok, a couple people seemed interested, so let's try another assignment. It's getting close to summer, folks, so let's try to heat it up a little! Interpret the word however you want to, but flex those photography muscles and really try to convey heat to us through your picture(s).

    Hey Kerwin - neat pictures. I noticed on your flickr that these were taken back in May. I'd encourage you to take new pictures with the theme as your guide, as that's sort of the point of the assignments/exercises: to help improve our creativity by giving us topics to go out and try to communicate via photography. Finding already-taken pictures that happen to fit the theme doesn't really do the same thing.

    I'm glad you posted in the thread. Think you could take the challenge and go for the challenge?

    Indeed I can. I keep trying to get out to the Eternal Flame to get some pictures. I believe that would fit quite well.
