What do you guys think of photography assignments/challenges for the forum?
    #11326090 - 10/26/09 07:26 PM (8 years, 24 days ago)

I'm trying to re-inspire myself to get back into photography, and learn new techniques.  At the moment I'd consider myself very amateur, though I have good gear, I haven't been able to spend grands on glass or anything, I do have a decent setup.
Pentax K20D DSLR with 18-55mm lens, 28-200mm lens, set 180mm 1:1 ratio macro, and a 50-500mm telephoto.  I have good gear but I made wrong choices and got things that were too heavy.  I need to get a couple new lenses, but I might as well teach myself with what I have.

I'm sure there are other photographers, amateur and maybe even professional here.  It would be cool to put together little weekly or biweekly challenges for everyone to compete in.  The rules would basically be explained from the beginning, with a couple set rules such as you can't use Old photos (photos must be taken after the challenge/assignment is given).
Maybe mix it up, some would be assignments, some would be challenges, challenges being more difficult while assignments have no voting, and are just for photographic practice.

What do you all think?  If it's a chill idea, definitely let me know.  I want to do a "Night City" Challenge.  I don't have money or anything so I don't know what to give the winner other than recognition.  But maybe we'll figure something out and eventually give out things like spore prints or something.  :P  I don't know.  Just an idea up in the air.

I'd be down at least whenever I had the time..I'm still learning. Have you heard of dpchallenge? They're already kind of doing what you're talking about.
