Shooting Stars

Nighttime photography has become extremely popular because of the excellent low-light performance of modern digital cameras. Your assignment is to head out after dark and shoot the Milky Way, the Northern Lights, and meteor showers! ...

Be Negative!

Pictures are sometimes criticized for having too much "negative space"-large areas of the frame with no "content:' But negative space is an important compositional tool in street photography and we should embrace it. ...

Shoot Film

Film has been around for almost 200 years, but have you ever shot a roll? Depending on your age and experience, there is a good chance you have only ever known digital capture. But for this assignment, we encourage you to return to the classic medium of 35mm film. There is something magical about exposing film, and getting back to basics is not only a good discipline, but a fun and rewarding experience. ...

Shoot Film For a Month

Despite the explosive advances in digital technology, film is still with us and it has made a comeback in recent years. Suddenly, people are interested in film once again and labs are dusting down their enlargers, community darkrooms are popping up, and film sales are rising. ...

It’s a Dog’s Life

Dogs have featured in street photography for years and can make terrific subjects. They don't object to having their picture taken (usually!), they will look you in the eye, and they often look cute. However, just walking around taking random pictures of random dogs probably isn't enough to hold anyone's attention for long-and it isn't exactly street photography. ...

Mono Magic

It may not be immediately obvious, but this is an assignment that will help you focus on the fundamentals of composition: shape, line, texture, and contrast. Without the distraction of color, these are the features that become important. They do, in fact, also underpin most color compositions, but in black-and-white they are vital ingredients of a successful shot. ...

Repeat That Please!

Street photography is often about making connections. Everywhere you look you should be looking for connections between your subjects and their surroundings. The connection can be obvious or subtle, literal or abstract, tenuous or direct; it just needs to be there. ...
