The April 2007 Photo Assignment was "Window to the Soul," and we have quite the introspective gallery -- 25 images submitted by These Digital Story members that demonstrate skills of observation and craftsmanship... and sometimes provide a glimpse into the photographer as well as the subject.
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 May assignment is "Slender." 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. For example, the subject line for this month's assignment should have been: "Photo Assignment: April 2007." Also, if you can, please don't strip out the metadata. I use that for the caption info.
Good luck with your May assignment, and congratulations to all of the fine contributors for April. It's a revealing collection of images.
