Monthly Assignment Rules

These are just general rules and recommendations, all assignments will have their specific rules and topics. Please adhere to them so we can maximise the learning experience.

1.) No previously shot pictures. You must shoot exclusively for the assignment, otherwise what's the point? (This means no old shots that just happen fit the topic.)

2.) You can submit as many entries as you want.

3.) This is not a contest,(there is a contest page if you feel confident enough to enter) if you have trouble getting it right, it is highly recommended you upload your attempt and let our friendly members help you to figure it out. Do not be afraid to upload "failed" shots.

4.) Tell us about your shot: Settings (f-stop, shutterspeed, flash, etc.), If you don't know how to find out, ask! Did you set up the shot in a certain way? Is there a story? This group is not a photo album, so don't just post your pics without comments.
