For all new members, we do have assignments. They are on pages 4 and 7, and yes they are optional! I highly suggest you accept these assignments though, as they can help you grow and realize why photography is important to you. I considered revisiting my answers, but I feel they are still relevent to me. Also, I don't mean to overload you, but it's time for...

~~ Average Under Five Assignment # Three ~~

If you could redo a challenge submission...

1. What would that challenge be and why,

2. What have you learned since that challenge that you wish you could use to alter that picture,

3. How would you apply what you have learned.

Please note that redoing your image would not be for the goal of a higher score, per say, but achieving what would be closer to a masterpiece. We're bound to grow over time, and that's the point of this challenge: to see how much you think you've grown since your said challenge ^_^ . If you want to redo the image and then post it here, that would be more than fine, that would be appreciated. :)

~~ Average Under Five Assignment # Three ~~

1. I'd personally revisit my grain challenge ... I'm confident about my ideas concerning this picture, but I was too rushed and didn't have the time to properly tend to it's production.

2. Since the shot, I've noticed my carelesness as the model, wardrobe designer and photographer. My pose was decent, but with an improved angle I could have used a better, more emotive pose. My clothing didn't relate to the topic of depression as well as it could have. Yet, out of all of these, the most important was my lack of understanding in the field of photography. I have been shown, and I have discovered, a few ways that this image could have been improved.

3. First off, in designing my wardrobe, the cool tones made for a good choice, but a shirt with no words or images on it would be less distracting in my opinion. Also, by going shirtless, sleeveless, or by pulling up a sleeve, I could have left red marks on arm to point towards cutting. A knife would therefor prove a helpful prop, adding variety for my posing. Infact, by pulling up my right sleeve and having "blood" running down that arm, I could then have my left arm over my knee holding a "bloody" knife. As far as camera technique, I have been shown that more space and light to the left could have had a major impact. Plus, by moving me or my camera, I could have easily blocked the power outlet next to my right arm. Infact, if I moved the camera so that it was right next to my left arm and pointing up so my face was silhoeted by the light, I could have gone further by forcing tears so they caught the light. Also, I may have benefited from using the rule of thirds. Well, I still like this image, despite the faults I see in it. Perhaps when I redo it, I'll be able to stick it on here (perhaps in a challenge ;D ).

origional shot:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/648/120/483299.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/648/120/483299.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
