Are you in a photographic rut? Shooting the same subject over and over?  Seeing the same people, the same streets, the same scenery day in and day out?

How about an exotic, inspiring, stimulating vacation to perk up your pixels!  Not an option right now?  Well, you can still change the way you see your familiar surroundings and get excited about your regular photo walks by giving yourself a photo assignment!

A photo assignment is a self-driven project that can require one hour or several months – it’s your assignment, so it’s up to you!  It’s a way to get out with your camera and improve your skills by challenging yourself. Most importantly, it’s a way to keep your passion for the craft fresh and alive!

Several photo assignment ideas come to mind. The first is to simply pick a different theme for each photo walk. This is a great idea if you get bored easily or need help staying focused, even for a short time.  You might shoot only textures or patterns one day, people with their dogs another day or situations that bring a smile to your face! The list is endless! Your photo walks will soon become a treasure hunt, whether you are alone or with a photo friend. [read]
