October’s Assignment – Make It Count

Soto-Fournier ManoloIMG_5242-1If there is such thing as “obvious” in an image, this is your month to portray it. It’s going to be a numbers game with this month of October’s assignment  – Make It Count. This challenge asks the photographer to capture in very literal fashion any number from one to ten.  A single baby lying in on the grass, eight rungs of a ladder, seven fingers being held up by your sister, four koi fish swimming in a pond, the number nine typed on a book page, the three wood resting in your golf bag; anyway you’d like to convey a number is the way to do it.

Woodward_Forest_23-1This goal is to also create images with strong composition using numbers as well. How does the use of numbers influence your conscious ability to compose your image (Rule of Thirds, anybody)? Take your time and let yourself count the ways to produce numerically pertinent images.

All images should be:

• jpeg format
• 72 ppi
• 600 pixels on the longest side
• If possible, we’d love it if the images you submit have your name in the file name and include a watermark (that’s the “© John Doe” at the bottom of the pic). Please submit three to five images.
