    We do this a lot on the Photography forums I am on and I figured it would be a good idea to bring it over to TW that way I can get you guys to get out and shoot! This is all for fun, but it's to get you guys out there! Remember the only you are going to improve is by doing...so for your first assignment I will give you an easy one!!

    "Flowers"

    Submit 1 shot of a flower, I don't care if it's color or black and white...go outside find a nice flower, compose a shot and take it! :) I want to see what you guys come back with! We will change it up every week! :)

    Thanks for setting this up Sir Marlon. This is a good exercise. By the way, what photography forum do you recommend (besides TW)?

    I like to shoot close ups, this was a few weeks ago with small Cannon pocket camera SD750. I have a few with my Nikon D40 as well I'll dig up later.
