The July 2007 Photo Assignment was "Pattern," and we have some absolutely striking images to show you -- 24 photos submitted by Digital Story members that demonstrate their keen eye for composition.
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 August assignment is "Intersection." 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 in the widest direction. 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 next month's assignment should be: "Photo Assignment: August 2007." Also, if you can, please don't strip out the metadata. I use that for the caption info.
Good luck with your August assignment, and congratulations to all of the fine contributors for July. It's a stunning collection of images.
