Lacking motivation to go out and shoot? Want to take photos but don’t know of what? Looking for ways to get better at your craft? Here’s the thread for you!

>4 assignments per month (you can try them in any order you'd like)
>Themes are 1) human subject 2) environment 3) abstract concept 4) compositional element
>Human subject: capturing the essence of a person through posed or candid portraits, or taking pictures with humans being a prominent element, like street photography
>Environment: landscapes. If you live in a city urbanscapes are acceptable too, but try to get out of town
>Abstract concept: something vague like “cold”, “heavy”, “opening”, “swinging”. Go crazy
>Compositional element: having a certain shape, like triangle or circle, or a compositional element, like repetition, diagonal, thirds. The rest is up to you
>You can post more than 1 photo for each assignment but do try to cover every theme per month
>Do try to take new photos instead of posting from your previous work
>Have fun!

Let’s set the deadline on the 15th of every month, but of course you can post results as soon as you have them and get friendly feedback from lovely anons.

Themes for this month:
>Anonymous self portrait: think of a way of capturing your essence WITHOUT DOXXING YOURSELF.
>Flat landscape: find a place that’s flat and boring and make it interesting
>Cold: winter is coming
>Off-center subject: let’s start with something simple. The composition as a whole has to make sense with the subject being off-center

Then you’re in for a challenge. There’s also no snow here at me moment. Try photographing a fridge, a dewy cold beer, the coldest stone-faced postal service employee you can find. You could go for something funny like snowy Christmas decorations on the sun-scorched backdrop of wherever you live. Come up with any idea, there’s no right or wrong, and discussing how successful or what could be done differently is part of the thread. It’s meant to be fun and challenging at the same time. Just do it, godspeed.

When posting photos meant to be seen together put them in a horizontal sequence and include some borders to separate them. When you tile them like this I see more the tiling than the photos. It shifts from /p/ to /gd/. One thing you can do for the presentation that still is part of photographic conventions is thinking about sizing. Sometimes you might want a photo to be smaller or bigger than the other. In this case there is no need.

Is this the flat landscape one? It’s not that clear. If it’s the anonymous portrait it’s waaaay too deep for me.
The photos don’t feel like proper landscapes, they lack a sense of depth or space. They are either too similar or not similar enough to work as a triptych.

Thanks for posting.
>>
>>3392086
It’s meant to be an environment study. Should have just used the 2 on the left. Or none of them, apparently.
Interesting point about the tiling (I do these a lot).
>>
>>3392097
Remember the keyword for environment this month is “flat” intended literally and not conceptually. You still have 29 days to take other pictures. Do it fag
>>
>>3392255
Just realised I have the reading comprehension skills of a whelk. Flat landscapes it is.
>>
>>3392414
I think the Op post is written in a confusing-enough manner that you can be forgiven for failing st your reading comprehension. It lists four themes in greentext, elaborates on those four themes, and then not until after the “comment too long” jump does it reveal that there are specific sub themes for those themes that we’re supposed to do. It’s kind of a mess.

wait, I thought the themes were human subject, environment, abstract, and compositional element

so they're instead anony self portrait (aka post whoever since you can't tell if it's anon anyway), flat landscape, cold, and off-center subject (?! good luck explaining this one)

anyway, I managed to put smth together I guess
my first bit of feedback would be to calm down and keep it to 3 topics, the harder and edgier you make these the less people will contribute, as you can already tell, and from past attempts

the idea isn't to make people have to plan a trip to the mountains 6 hours away on 2 weeks' notice but to instead encourage people to go out for a couple of hours and have a few ideas as inspiration/topic

so starting with a shitty anon self portrait I s'pose
not gonna be in a hurry with posting though

ASSIGNMENTS THIS MONTH ARE:

1) ANONYMOUS SELF PORTRAIT
2) FLAT LANDSCAPE/CITYSCAPE/GENERIC ENVIRONMENT
3) SOMETHING CREATIVE ABOUT THE WORD "COLD"
4) A PHOTO WITH AN OFF-CENTER SUBJECT

The themes just categorize the four assignments each month, in case this thread survives more than one edition.
____________________________

Alright, I did fuck up the description pretty badly, I'll plan the next better.
Anyway, someone posted an archive of a past monthly challenge and it had 4 assignments (1 per week) in 3 categories (portrait, landscape, abstract word), which meant that every month you had one category twice, that's why I added the fourth.
Landscape was included in the old thread so I changed it to "environment" to make it easier for city folks to do it. I chose "flat" after seeing threads of anons complaining they lived in flat and uninteresting countries, and flatland is where the majority of people live anyway. Sorry for anons living in the Himalayas, you can photograph a flat valley with the mountains on the sides.
Off-center just means the subject isn't smack in the middle of the frame, put it on the thirds or near the edge as long as it makes sense (like walking person with more space in front of them or some shit).

I hope it's clear now
>>
>>3394334
Also, thank you for posting.

Regarding your pic, I can't comment on how successful it is at representing who you are, because of course I don't know you. Seeing your cross-pose with the lighting and spartan room decoration I would say you're a spiritual, almost monastic person. It clashes a bit with the large dark upper part of the image, you could read it as "there is no god up there". So if you're a Christian that's eaten by doubt, congrats, you nailed it.
Minor nitpicks, the hands blend in with the dark... windows? Whatever they are. And you're slightly off. Being slightly off could go with the theme of losing one's faith if that's what you planned. Otherwise use continuous shooting if your camera has it.
I like the arch passing behind your head, and the natural lighting is nice.

n-no need to be upset anon, it was clear enough to me what the assignments are this month
>>3394399
aw anon you didn't have to go all out trying to save my shitty snap with a generous analysis
I'm personally not all that happy with the pic and I didn't put that much effort in to get it right, that's what happens when you take pics while out with non-/p/ people; I agree with all your comments about it, it is off, the hands don't work well with the thingies in the window; the actual picture that I am slightly more happy with is only with the window, but I'll make a separate thread with the pics from muh trip at some point
anyway, it fit the theme so..

the river is decently flat...I guess

I guess it's a bit of a stretch, but not that far fetched, so here it is (there was no snow but it was pretty freaking cold in Binland)

fair point, I was almost certain I had another one from further back but seems I didn't; if I had more time around that place I probably would've realized this but oh well

and so finish up my round of disappointments:
>4) Off-center subject

if anything, this 4th part made me realize how much I center my subjects, no joke like 80% of time my subject is right bang in the center, and I make a point of autistically making sure it's perfectly centered
I don't think that's necessarily wrong, it makes me feel very good when something is nicely centered and aligned, everything at equal distance or at least with nice proper proportions; not that I manage to get that every time or so, but I do like that kind of thing

so I will keep this in mind and try to at least once in a while _not_ center everything in my frame

hopefully I can have better contributions next month! thanks for bothering to make the thread OP (I am expecting your contributions too y'know, set an example)

Flat landscape. It was handheld at 1/8, I should have brought a tripod in retrospect.

>>3400102
>(and ugly)
It's ok, one of the purposes of this challenge is working with what you have and make the most of it.
For your diptych, it's two pictures taken just a few meters apart from each other. I'd say to either pick only one, or go full hog and have three or more to really drive home the feeling of flatness and monotony. Having them side by side in a very long image instead of one above the other also works with flat. In the second photo you have a bright patch (graffiti) and a colorful patch (yellow sign), be careful where you want to place those.

>>3400177
Cool that you managed to find something interesting even in the blandest of situations. If it had to be a landscape it would be nice to have more feeling of space, see a bit of the surroundings.

Let people like what they like, Jesus Christ. If you want to critique the photo, critique the photo, don’t flex your tiny dick at someone else just because they enjoyed something you didn’t.

A lot of beginners (me included)
Topo is usually dead center too

It is? Never thought about it. Usually, I don't put my subject in the center.

I know you have different experiences. I was quite surprised when you said the kids you taught to used the rule of thirds naturally. At least for me, lots of other beginners I met irl, and some people who post here on /p/, it’s subject dead center, click. It’s the path of least effort. I would say it’s quite popular also thanks to people like Wes Anderson putting everything center and symmetrical, and the instagram hipsters crowd. Works well in square format I guess.

I thought that, especially in beginners, it's related to the central AF point - same with rangefinders. Never really got into that new topo stuff, except for Eggleston, if his stuff is considered to belong in that genre. Personally, I think I failed miserably at trying it, but I probably learned something from it. Square format is somewhat cheating when it comes to composition to me.
The kids curated their shots and are going to have their exhibition soon, looking forward to this.

A bit messy. The bright patch cancels part of your reflection. Having a glass between you and the chessboard might mean you want to play the game but you can’t, or that you’re a detached person or so. Putting your reflection in the middle of it could suggest you don’t like to take sides.

The long journey to go buy RDR2.
Have you noticed the left edge of the road makes a line cutting the photo in half?

>>3402564
Framing a bit to the left might balance the tree with the lighter patch on the ground. The tree is a bit too small and too off-center to feel it is the subject.

>>3402619
Yep, it’s cold.

>>3402660
Gr8 job for getting all four done manzanitafag. A bit too close to the edge. I like the bokeh lights, they might be a meme but without them it would feel empty. See you again on the 15 if you’re up for the second round.

Thanks for participating senpai.

I was thinking more about the Bechers. What do you mean square is cheating?
