I love photography and stumbled Ted Forbes, when I was looking for more info on Vivian Maier. Although his critique of Ms Maier was a bit prickly and I disagreed with some of it, I subscribed and have been hooked, (Videos 1, 2 , and 3 ).
His videos are jam packed with inspiration and include new gear, technique, and a favorite of viewers.....photo assignments. Viewers participate in a bi-weekly photo assignment by posting them through Social Networks, which helps you push yourself a bit farther......creatively. He then creates a video using the submissions......but OH BOY when your photos makes the cut.....it's quite a compliment.
This past assignment, which was photo sequences and I made the cut!
You can enter as many as you want, here are my submissions:Subway Band
Subway Pole Dancer
Me the subject, my father's sketch
Beginning to photograph circa mid 1960's
.....and here is the submission that made the cut
Watch the Full Video, the submissions are fantastic and I am in very good company
Get out, take photos and join in the fun!
