    MSA September/October 2012: "Angles and Curves"

    Here we go for another round of the Monthly Shooting Assignment. Thank you everyone for your kind words.

    For those of you who don't know me, my name is Dave and I am based in northwest Washington State, U.S. I am new to the MSA but had a lot of fun last round.

    The assignment for this time is "Angles and Curves". It can sometimes add interest to an image to incorporate lines that are straight or curved. Lines are all around us. They occur in nature, architecture, street photography and a thousand other places.

    For any new readers, here's the basic idea of the MSA : (copy)
    1. Take note of the MSA assignment, which will be inserted into the title of this thread.
    2. Take your photo(s) according to the assignment guidelines. Try to shoot something new rather than grabbing from your archives.
    3. You can post your photo in the MSA Gallery or, you can host your photo elsewhere and link to it in this thread, or, you can post it as an attachment to a message here in this thread and it will show as a clickable thumbnail.
    4. It's all for fun, there are no prizes, but at the end of the MSA, a previous winner will choose a new assignment and a new "victim" to lead the MSA in the next two months.
    5. How to upload: the same as in the standard gallery, press upload, then push on the "Categorie", you find a drop-down menu and press the Monthly Shooting Asignment, it’s placed under the "Member organized functions" and enter the rest, that's it. If you aren't a subscriber, you cannot upload to the galleries so subscribe first.

    I don't care if you submit one photo or several.

    Oh, the most important thing is to have fun!
    Dave

    Hi Dave!
    Interesting assignment! Can you post some examples of what you're looking for to "prime the pump" so to speak?

    Angles can be in the railing to a bridge.

    Sometimes the smallest of creatures can give us angles.

    Sometimes there are no straight lines, but the curve in the road ahead.

    Angles and curves are all around us if we can just see them.

    Inside a covered bridge in North Carolina. I used two flashbulbs to light up the interior and even out the exposure.

    I'm in. Just loaded a roll of TriX in the RZ so this will give me something to think about when I'm out shooting.

    Robb,
    Welcome aboard! These Assignments don't get too specific. It is nice to get thinking about these basic ideas and keep working on a fairly regular basis.

    Dave, Glad you liked my Curves/cane image. You were right! There are angles and curves everywhere! I actually shot a whole roll in one day, with examples of both. It was quite fun! I posted what I thought were the best, but I have lots more.
    Thanks for opening my eyes up to the angles and curves I never really saw before...

    I thought that this exercise would be an aid in composition. Seeing a line or an angle or a curve can add interest to an image and at some point it becomes natural to see potential pictures that include a way to add interest of the picture's viewer. The danger in this is if overused, it can become a cliche.
