    Monthly Shooting Assignment - May/June 2014: Near and Far

    There have been wonderful MSA topics lately, I hope this will not be too mundane!


    The theme for May and June is Near and Far.


    Please do not feel constrained to a literal interpretation. Use creativity and imagination!

    The theme also "just happens" to be well suited to pinhole photography
    You won't get an unfair advantage from pinhole but you might enjoy it!


    If you have been thinking of trying MSA, please do! All are welcome and it is a lot of fun.

    Here is a link to the Guidelines for MSA.

    That's a cool topic, Ned. I look forward to attempting a photograph with this in mind. Got an idea for it.

    Hi NedL,
    Three of my favorite words (okay, four, but you know what I mean).
    A wonderful theme. This will trigger a lot of fine interpretations.
    I'll have fun thinking about what and how to shoot. And even more fun shooting it.
    Thanks,

    Oh my! I'm nervous... Haha

    I haven't re-loaded my 11x14 pinhole box and still haven't been able to find a cheap 11x14 holder (which I've realized I need as the darn one I made keeps having the film fall out in transit... Lol) but I will have to think of something...

    Yeah, here we go!

    All photographs are welcome. No "extra points" for pinhole.

    I hope to participate with some "non-qualified" photos too....

    Will you be posting some examples of what you're looking for with this topic? I'm not quite sure how to approach it...

    When I saw the theme, I immediately thought of this:

    This is all I use to keep my 11x14 MGiv in my pinhole suitcase, never done me wrong yet (and practically invisible on the image too).
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Hi Barbara Ann,

    Matt's photo was a good one.
    However you want interpret it! I hope thinking about what to do will be part of the fun.

    It could be literal ( people near and far, clouds near and far, hills near and far )
    or emphasize something small in the wider world ( a blade of grass in a field receding into the distance )
    or something far brought near ( the reflection of a far mountain in a nearby puddle )
    or a tiny pattern repeated in a large scale ( Repeated patterns near and far )
    or not literal: a couple sitting next to each other but made far apart by staring into their cell phones...
    or two things that seem similar but are really far apart, or seem far apart but are really nearly the same...
    or almost anything in front of a night sky...
    or ... or ...!
