The following ideas have been recycled from assignments set by the Letchworth Arts and Leisure Group’s ‘Photography Out and About’ group for its members.
Series of Images of a Single Subject
The challenge is to produce six (or a number you choose) of different images showing a single subject of your choice in interesting ways. Possibilities include a close-up, a long shot, monochrome, different angles, night-time shot, etc.
In One Room
A winter assignment to take a set of interesting images within one room of your house, using only one lens, set to a single focal length. Could include items normally in the room, table-top set-up done for the occasion, an all-round panorama, etc.
12-Shot ‘Roll of Film’
This assignment is to go to a chosen location and take just 12 shots (or 6 or any number you set in advance) to form an interesting series. Obviously the challenge is not to take a dud, which means thinking about each picture before you press the button, and ideally about the series as a whole to ensure there is some thematic continuity.
