With our first Basic photography classes, I always "preach" to the attendees to start a photographic project of their own as soon as possible...
A photographic project will provide you with direction and purpose. Decide on a theme and the output you want to achieve…
Ideas for projects...
These are but a few ideas, which may help you to come up with your own ideas. Just know that virtually any object, or subject, will work, as long as it is interesting and contextual.
Danie this is awesome. Thank you for this information and the guidelines are more than welcome. Will def. look at this.
Nie rêrig 'n skaduwee nie. Was donker agter, met lig wat van daai venster inkom.

Danie die is uitstekend! Love die tweede een van onder af. Dink ek sien n persoon se skaduwee by die derde een van onder af. Dankie vir die shots, sal verseker die bietjie probeer.
Firstly the images are stunning, and each one deserves its own credit. Thank you for sharing your work.
I think it is a stunning Idea. There is nothing worse than not having a reason to photograph...
I have been focusing on large panoramics (excuse the pun) and it has taken all my attention to finding suitable subjects.
I personally have been wanting to do a photobook of "Tyre Shops" as there were some stunning examples in West Africa. I could do a Photobook of Panoramics of tyre shops.. You have inspired me to get my "A" into gear and start my own project.
The other idea I have been thinking about is photographing sport that I do, and as I will probably not ever go to Track Worlds due to my fall... I will use my tallents to photograph track or Cycling etc.
P.S. Just ordered Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR2... No More low light difficulties at f2.8. (Just need to sell old f2.8)
Hi, yes... this is brilliant photos... each one deserves its own medal. By starting a project(s), you also start building your portfolio.
I heard of a guy that took a photo of a windmill (wind pomp) with no photography experience what so ever, upon which several people gave him such good feedback he started to drive through the whole off South Africa taking photo's of all sort of windmills.
PS! Time, effort and patience plays a great roll when tackling such projects ! ! !
Danie, thanks for the very informative ideas, it was great to be there with you guys, Ive shown these photos to all who were interested in our tour, the way you have edited these into black and whites is a very interesting way to show the mood of the place. From a plumbing perspective, they definitely built things to last.
