Neowin Bi-weekly Photography Assignment 1: Light


Recommended Posts

Hmm, point taken.

Thing is, if this is to happen every 2 weeks, I'd like to give a full weeks notice to get your votes in, you can wait till a day prior if you so wish - but this is just a way to get everyone to make sure their entries are in early, and on time!

I'll think about other ways I can do this though.

It's simple.

Have assignment A end on the 20th. The thread is locked and nobody can add pictures to it. Voting will go to the 27th.

Have assignment B start on the 21st. People can post their new assignment pictures to that thread.

I also think this to be the best solution; many websites have used this strategy to host contests with great success.

Also, what are the limits on post-processing?(photoshopping)?

None as long as you have an original raw file. Make a composite if you like!

Perfect.

I'll update the original post with this information.

I was thinking... this is a great idea! But it failed last time because of members lack of control over it... I'm not sure how well neowin would like this idea, but why not set up a seperate site for these kind of competitions? So that you can make a system for people to submit entries and vote etc..

It's early days, I'm willing to alter and change the process of the assignment to suit the needs of the majority of people taking part!

I think it's less of a competition, and more of a collaboration of ideas, I just want to push people to be more creative and learn more technically to better the quality of input into the assignment!

Is there a way to replicate that effect using a point and shoot camera? or is there a way to replicate it using photoshop?

I love it.

Thanks! it's quite easy, just have a high iso with low shutter speed and experiment :)

High ISO on a compact though might be a problem as you get lots of noise :(

Are we still allowed to submit? Not sure when the deadline is.

Nevermind.

However are we allowed to link to images? As My image exceeds 800px in width.

What should i do maccy?

You could always resize it using a program such as irfanview or photoshop.

Couple of choices, you can link me via PM and I'll re-link you with a re-sized version if you'd like.

Or you could upload to Flickr yourself and choose a different resolution, otherwise you could try resizing yourself

Had more submissions for numero uno than I imagined! Good work folks, some really astounding shots. Hopefully the new topic will be a little less boring for you all!

Oof! I was a little specific on that time, wasn't I, ha ha.

I'll happily allow pictures a little while past the deadline, but once the thread is locked ready for voting, there's nothing else I can do!

Okay, might add a proper photo.

This is the first picture I took with my digital camera ages ago, nothing special;
