This photo was taken in November 2010 as part of a photo challenge on PhotographyBB. The challenge was to take a photograph that had something to do with Transportation. When I saw the assignment I immediately thought about bicycles at the train station. Although I didn’t had a clear vision of what I wanted exactly as photo, I did go to the train station just to take photos of bikes. This photo was actually published in the PhotographyBB magazine number 36.
Although I only participated once in a photographic challenge or assignment I think that there are a few things that could help you with getting better results:
- Make sure you know what you want to shoot, without a vision it will probably take a long time before you find a suitable subject to shoot.
- Stay focused while you are shooting for the assignment. Don’t go shooting something else instead before you have some shots that could be promising. Doing so will make the changes that you will come back with a good photo for the assignment smaller.
- Take the time. Don’t make it a five minute job to go and shoot for the assignment, take your time. When you are in a hurry it is more likely that you make errors that can ruin the shot.
