December’s Assignment – Patterns

For many people in the United States, the primary goal this week is to make it through a few days of work so the Thanksgiving festivities can begin. We understand this is a lofty goal and shouldn’t be taken lightly. However, once you have successfully achieved it and are looking to redirect your attention from the football on your TV or gravy on your plate, we recommend you pick up your camera and dive into our December assignment.  You did great last month and we are hoping this next assignment, combined with the time of year are equally inspiring.

The assignment is “patterns.”  This can be interpreted in many ways…and we hope it is! As we were kickin’ ideas around the water cooler, we envisioned images of the patterns on grandma’s special holiday china, the patterns in your favorite Christmas sweater, your old man’s eating patterns over the next few weeks, or even a creative rendition of your holiday flight pattern. (Ooohh …. didn’t think of that one didya?!) As always, we welcome any and every genre of photography. Portraiture, studio, landscape, wedding, family snapshots, adventure….all of it. The primary goal here is for you to grab your camera and create something.  Here are the details:
