Those of you who followed or joined in on my last assignment got a heads up about this one. As this is a long assignment, I am now listing the latest photo assignment (or challenge) at the top of the right-hand sidebar for your reference under the title, Assignments (how original, eh?).
Unlike my other assignments, I am asking for, at least, a three (3) photograph essay relating to Travel Photography. I know some of you cringed at the word, “essay”. I wrote a post to explain about photo essays being no more than the addition of extended captions to your photos to pull them together into an article.
Here are some travel photography links to inspire you on your trips this summer:
Remember, travel photography does not mean you have to travel to far off distance lands. My town is a travel destination as are many nearby places. It is the style of a photo essay which can tell us the story of the place you wish to photograph and share. Have fun and extra credit if you include people in your essay. 🙂
Built in 1901, the Tugboat Urger is now a teaching tug and spends it’s days throughout the year educating school children and adults about the importance of New York’s historic Barge Canal System.
As in the other assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr or other photo sharing site, personal website or any other place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then we can visit those sites and enjoy everyone’s Travel Photo Essays.
Please, have your photos posted on or before Midnight (your time), Wednesday, September 8, 2010. Don’t have a place to post? Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr. As I have done for all the Assignments, I’ll put together a recap with my comments.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. By the way, I would really appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this assignment so we can get lots of people to participate. Blog it, tweet it, email it and talk about it to your fellow photographers, bloggers, friends, family and pets. Thank you!
