July Monthly Assignment Posted: "HISTORY"

The votes are in and HISTORY will be the topic for July's photography assignment. Brush up on the rules by reading this past post.

You will have from now until July 27 to submit an entry. Voting polls will then open and the winner will be announced on August 1.

Need some inspiration for this topic? Efrain Cruz, director of Illuminate Photography Workshops had this to say about capturing "History" as a photographic concept:

"I think this is a great idea. You will likely get so many variations, perspectives, and interpretations that the field will be beautifully vast. It might also be such a vast field that photogs could get stymied by the vastness of it all. They could get lost in the scope that they do nothing, or nothing creative. However, I think that a lot of great work will come out of it."

Some of my readers have already commented that they think the topic is too broad, but don't get tripped up by that. Use this as a great opportunity to think outside of the viewfinder. What does history mean to you? How could it be crafted compositionally in an image? I'm looking forward to seeing some amazing interpretations. Good luck everyone!
