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!

THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENTS - DETAILS EDITION
>1) Photo of only a part of a person, like the hands or the mouth or the eyes.*
>2) Architectural detail. Make a diptych with a shot of the building as a whole if you wish.
>3) “Grace”.
>4) Texture.

[spoiler]*: the part should still be attached to the living body it is part of. Please don't pull a Dahmer on this.[/spoiler]

HOW DOES IT WORK
>4 assignments changing every month (LISTED ABOVE) but categorized in 4 recurring themes
>You can try them in any order you like
>Recurring themes are 1) human subject 2) environment 3) abstract concept 4) compositional element
>1) Posed or candid portraits, or taking pictures with humans being a prominent element, like street photography
>2) Landscapes. If you live in a city urbanscapes are acceptable too, but try to get out of town
>3) Something vague and open to interpretation
>4) 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
>Try to take new photos instead of posting from your archive
>Have fun!

Deadline is 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.

Someone beat ac to the first photo post? Wow
I forgot to clearly say the body part should be the subject, it’s meant to be a portrait. In a certain sense it’s a portrait of two pop art portraits, ok

Gave one of my stripper friends a ride. Asked "Hey, can you do something graceful when we get there?" This was the result.

>>3464898
There's something about the lines placement that doesn't convince me. Mainly the only dark areas are on the right, which leaves the big white area on the left unbalanced. Look at some Mondrian to get an idea of good balance. Maybe it's a matter of taste, but a bit more contrast would do the photo better. It's underexposed as well, I think.
>>3464907
Better. The two dark areas divided by the arm and the white one seem more or less the same size. Light seems a bit flat, it makes the fingers fuse together.
>>3465094
It's ok ac, we love you with all your shortcomings. Especially if you post tits.
>>3465553
I think it's ok. No point in nitpicking.
>>3465612
Could have been framed a bit higher to show the eyebrow and less of the burned cheek
>>3465613
Nailed focus. The mouth being barely visible is a bit annoying, I would have included it.
>>3465829
I think it would feel balanced if you cropped the floor to a 5x7 or something similar. Im partial to photos with a human presence, and here it's implied by the empty chairs. Same number as visible portraits too. If I were an artsy fartsy curator I could probably come up with some convoluted explanation for this shot.
>>3466238
You're shooting with a phone so I guess your margin of action is kinda limited. The colors look a bit muddy. Is this overcast weather or shortly after sunset? Soft lighting goes well with grace, but it's underexposed, I guess because the sky is much brighter than the subject. If you get a bit closer you could probably hide the branches and lines on the left behind the wall.
>>3466239
It's a matter of balance like >>3464898, some more space around the metering thingy, straighten your image.
>>3466241
It looks like you took a photo by mistake. There's a lot you could do with these self-portraits. Look up Arno Rafael Minkkinen, he did a series of surrealistic self portraits in the '80.
>>
>>3467274

>>3466423
Yep, it's texture. I would play with the colors to make that pale beige look more yellowish. I think blue and yellow is a good color combo.
>>3466499
The blue lights on the right annoy me. Try to cover them with your thumb, the photo becomes much more coherent color-wise

P.s. check your instagram messages senpai.

Yeah, I wasn't a huge fan of the background in general in that shot; it was just a fun little quickie snapshot. I'm hoping to get something better before the month's over.
