    Apparently my lack of experience has led to another idiotic idea. Photography is turning out to be just like marriage! Lol, ok then. I respectfully withdraw my (good intentioned but eye rollingly bad) suggestion of an OOC challenge, for the many and valid reasons listed by others. Smart others

    No, no, no. Not idiotic at all, man. It's just that it would be hard to do for a challenge. Trying to get the best exposure and composition in camera should definitely be a goal for us all. You are TOTALLY on the right track!

    I think it's a good idea. Some of my shots look better (to me anyway) SOOC.

    Re: Monthly Assignment Topics

    I joined Nikonites MAINLY for the weekly and monthly assignments. Not to enjoy my comforts with photography, but to use the experience of others for inspiration and to expand my understanding of photography. If I were to suggest a few topics, they may include techniques like Motion Blur, Astrophotography or Flash Photography - on camera or off. That is, using your camera a particular way. Other areas that would be fun to consider would be simple - open- to- interpretation- things like Artificial, Natural, Abstract, Macro, etc.

    I agree but I'll have to confess that I don't get abstract. At all.

    Here is an example of a SOOC shot that looked fine to me. NEF converted to Jpeg, no adjustments.

    I have been shooting only in RAW for the last year or more. After doing it only in JPEG and later trying RAW and learning how to develop. And I feel very comfortable with it now. Nevertheless somtimes I also find that at dev time I just open it and export to JPEG.
    We should agree if we will do the dev directly in the camera (shooting in JPEG) or passing the RAW through a software without touching it.
    In summary I agree with your idea.


    Finally I have seen very interesting and new topics from Woody and Daw ...

    LOL. Yeah, that's one of those things people seem to either like or not, with very little middle ground. Kinda' like whether you like Bob Dylan's voice or not.
