One thing that isn't absent from the Oct. 08 Photo Assignment, "Missing," is creative interpretation of the theme. We have well-executed shots such as a girl's missing teeth by Brian Reynolds all the way to a missing letter by Dave Bream. You can see them all in the Oct. 08 Photo Assignment Gallery. There's some great stuff here!
I also want to mention, that starting this month, the monthly Photo Assignment is going to take on new meaning. I'm going to use this as part of an overall photography course on various aspects of the craft. So there will be a podcast lesson for you, then the photo assignment to practice it. I think you're really going to like this.
Which leads us to the December 2008 assignment, "Group Shot." 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: Dec. 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 December assignment, and congratulations to all of the fine contributors for October. It's an excellent collection of images.
