A few days ago I stumbled upon the “The Art of Photography” channel on youtube. This is where I found a video on photo assignments. Ted Forbes (the guy behind this channel) states that the only way to improve your photography is to push yourself by challenging your skills. A few months ago he introduced photo assignments to his channel and I’ve decided to follow along.
In his introductory video for the assignments he also gives the first assignments, “Something you Love”. I’ve picked my dog – Maurice the french bulldog – as my subject. Ted also instructs to keep a photographer’s sketchbook. This is a book in which you’ll put all your pictures and it’s a way to be able to draw on your photos and comment on them.
Here’s the result of the initial assignment.
