The February Photo Assignment was "Texture," and we have quite the tactile gallery -- 35 images submitted by The Digital Story members demonstrate the creativity and craftsmanship of our virtual camera club shooters. These are shots you just want to touch!
To produce the gallery, the pictures were first loaded into Aperture. I then added the accompanying stories to the IPTC caption field and combined it with the EXIF data from the photograph. The final step was to create a web gallery in Aperture and upload it to the Digial Story server. You can view this month's photo assignment here.
The March assignment is "Self Portrait." Start working on your contribution now. Details can be found on the Submissions page. Because of our new gallery format, you can now submit photo assignment pictures up to 600 pixels wide for horzontal shots, 400 pixels wide for verticals. Please follow the instructions carefully for labeling the subject line of the email for your submission. It's easy to lose these in the pile of mail if not labeled correctly. Also, if you can, please don't strip out the metadata. I use that for the caption data.
Good luck with your March assignment, and congratulations to all of the fine contributors for February. It's a outstanding collection of images.
