Photography Assignments
old-camera.png This series of photo assignments was prepared at the request of a former student, looking for direction during her initial forays into photography. As she had just bought a Nikon D40, the content is geared towards that equipment. Those with other setups will have to make adjustments accordingly.

For the most part, however, technical skills are de-emphasized and geek-speak is kept to a minimum in this series of tutorials. For many beginners, a preoccupation with ƒ-stops and shutter speeds and focal lengths can be a deadening turn off. For that reason, other, equally important abilities, such as observational skills, composition and lateral thinking are emphasized.
