Editor's Note: Part 1 of of Sept. 08 Gallery
Why do I say "Part 1"? Well, because I've been on the road, and I'm sensing that something strange is going on with my email. As a result, I think there are a number of entries for the Sept. 08 Photo Assignment that I don't have in my inbox. If yours is one of the missing entries, please drop me a line with your submission so I can add it to the gallery. I'll run a second post once I hear from folks. (Sometimes technology is a drag!)
OK, On to the Festivities
The September 2008 Photo Assignment was "Quiet," and we have a terrific selection of images to show you -- 6 photos (so far) submitted by Digital Story members who demonstrate their ability to identify the quiet world around them, then capture it in their camera lens.
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 November 2008 assignment is "Whirlwind." 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: Nov. 2008." Also, if you can, please don't strip out the metadata. And feel free to add any IPTC data you wish (These fields in particular: Caption, Credit, Copyright, Byline), I use that for the caption info.
Good luck with your November assignment, and congratulations to all of the fine contributors for September. It's an excellent collection of images.
