    July 2014 Monthly Assignment - Nifty Fifty(ish)!!

    Basic photography. Just you, your camera and a 50mm (or equivalent) lens. Strip it all down and focus on composition and creativity. Zoom with your feet. Break out of your old habits and maybe discover a new point of view!!

    For this challenge only: All images must be taken with a 50mm FX or equivalent lens (CX: 18.5mm - DX: 35mm) OR an equal focal length with a zoom.





    Assignments are designed to help you grow your photography skills and creativity, and have fun doing so. Assignments are to make all of us photographers think outside the box also.

    The Rules

    For this challenge only: All images must be taken with a 50mm FX or equivalent lens (CX: 18.5mm - DX: 35mm) OR an equal focal length with a zoom.

    1. Any photo submitted for a monthly assignment must be taken during the month specified in the assignment thread and taken by you! Because not all EXIFdata can be verified, we will use the honor system.
    2. Photos must be posted to the thread in order to be considered for the challenge. Links to photos will not be considered an entry.
    3. Only three photo entries per member, for each assignment, unless otherwise indicated.
    4. Assignments will be judged solely by the panel. Individual voting via post "likes" will be incorporated into the final selection of the winning photo.
    5. Judging criteria is based on the Twelve Elements of a Merit Image, the number of "likes" received by the entries, and, the moderator's selections.
    6. The panel will select 5 shots to be displayed in the Monthly Challenge forum and homepage of the site.


    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Challenge, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.

    Any photo will be accepted for the assignment. Edited/straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the assignment subject.

    Here is my first entry. D600 with 50mm 1.8 AF-D lens. It's nice to see such bokeh with the prime lenses.

    Okay, so I really wanted to use my 50mm f/1.8, but I have a DX camera, so that would be bending the rules. I set my zoom to as close to 35mm as I could and off I went today.

    Here's entry number 1
