Homework Assignment – Expression

It’s been months since we have had one of these. I’m not sure how it will go, it’s kind of why we didn’t have one for so long. I get so discouraged when the response doesn’t come, but I thought I’d give it a try and we’ll see what happens.

The Assignment is about CAPTURING EXPRESSION and remember what Bambi Cantrell said when we interviewed her, ‘expression beats perfection any day’!

It’s so important to look to document the emotions because that’s when we see into the soul. So often I find myself holding the shutter half way down and just waiting… waiting for genuine expression to shine through. Show me your favorite image where you can literally feel what they feel.

This assignment is available for everyone, amateur, aspiring and seasoned pro. It’s an opportunity to share, enjoy and learn. I’m using Mr Linky for the first time so we’ll see how this works out. You’ll want to post your photo on your blog, or through Flickr and then you’ll add your permalink to the linky at the bottom of this post. I really hope to see what you’ve come up with. If this goes well we can make this a more regular thing with guest judges and prizes. The link will be active from Monday to Monday.
