    It can be a style.

    In art school my profs branded the saying on my crania - we've all heard it a gazillion times.

    "A great idea executed poorly is better than a poor idea executed well."

    But again, it's no excuse either for shoddy work. Obviously, there is a fine line....... Cheers.

    My former roommate played bass and he always said that if he made a mistake on stage he would repeat so that everyone would think it was his purposeful decision to do so. A rose by any other name . . . Sure sloppy can be a style. But I wouldn't admit to it myself.

    I think it can. IMHO a sloppy print showing an ordinary or even extraordinary subject will not make people turn their heads however a sloppy print carrying a strong message may do that. That being said I would still try to overcome sloppy...

    Hm, as for an assignment for yourself, have you seen the movie "Smoke" with Harvey Keitel? Check it out, I cannot find a better and interesting example of a photographic assignment.

    I let myself guided by what I see around me in other words I find that every type of environment has some kind of appeal (photographic that is); As suggested I carry a camera with me at all times and shoot what inspires me, whether landscape, cityscape or people. Love for the medium and a genuine pleasure to share what I see/ feel with other people is what drives me out of the house. Unfortunately having to work 9-5 leaves me very little time to shoot

    You will likely get more suggestions by posting this in the forum. Or doing a search--I do believe this topic has come up before.

    Here is my suggestion--just carry a camera with you at all times (I carry a Holga) and shoot something every day, regardless of how mundane it may seem. I find that after a few rolls of this, a "theme" appears than I can focus on.

    You think it's bad now. Wait until the onset of G. A. S. (Many threads here on the topic)

    Glad you're having fun.

    They're the type that think the government bailouts are a good thing.

    Thanks for the reads, folks.
