Community Photo Assignments - July 2017


Every month, people like yourself will have the opportunity to train and challenge your eye with some photography. I will pick a prompt (usually a word or phrase provided from the community; something to theme an image) and you can go out there with your camera to see what you can capture with that phrase in mind!

July's theme is "FOOD." Interpret it as you wish! If people may not be able to figure out the connection between your photo and the theme, it might be a good idea to leave a one-to-two sentence description.


  • Please keep it to one photo. Spend time and effort picking your favorite.
  • Photos must be your own, and taken WITHIN the timeline of the challenge. No, you cannot use work you've previously shot.
  • Keep it SFW.
  • Use of something outside of a DSLR is allowed.
  • Do not provide criticism unless the artist asks for it.
  • Have fun. :slight_smile:

I personally share photos on Flickr and 500px - it is a decent resource for sharing photos that are capable of retaining some quality and sharing meta data. Make sure you read their ToS before committing to a platform. Speaking of which...

Legal jargon provided by forum overlords:

  • All submitted images are submitted with creative commons license, no commercial use outside of L1T without prior consent of the author, attribution mandatory; [this is in the site ToS already but just a reminder]
  • All submitted images come with the guarantee of the submitting user that he owns all the rights to those images and is fully qualified to license those images as aforementioned;
  • The submitted images will not interfere with rights of third persons, meaning no people will be photographed without a model release permitting publication under the conditions set forth here;
  • In countries where applicable, the submitted images will not interfere with rights in res of third persons, meaning the rights of the image of objects belonging to persons in countries that protect the right to an image of those objects (e.g. France, but also some publicly accessible musea - in Anglo-American countries - for instance). The submitting user is liable for checking and/or clearing these rights prior to submitting;
  • The submitted images will not contain derogatory or offensive content in any way;
  • The submitted images will not contain private information of third persons, and will not contain data that could be abused, like for instance software keys, confidential technical data, etc;

"Food" is something that is consumed every day from all walks of life. I personally would like to try culinary photography a little, and the subject is relatively easy to find for everyone... Making it visually appealing is a challenge of its own, though. :slight_smile:

Anyone else with an interest in photography will also be welcome in This wonderful megathread I'm shamelessly plugging:

post your setups, ask questions, and share yor workflow and techniques in the pursuit of the perfect shot


Oh wow... Challenge accepted...
I have a large culinary thread in the forum. I just need to arrange a nice display and away I go...
(shameless plug link below)

Hm... May be something with a lot of contrasting colors on top of contrasting flavors, or a "rainbow thing" that softly transits from one color to the next...
May be I will finally try and make that "terrine" dish with some sauces...
So many ideas, and I am only limited to 1 picture...
Oh well...
