FCCP Weekly

Photo Assignment


Week 83


Topic: Flowers


Please only upload one (1) image


The submitted image must be shot

during the week of the assignment

Following in the tradition of some of the great photo documentary magazines we are starting a weekly assignment project. Every Wednesday a new assignment with a topic will be posted. You'll have one week or in some cases less to complete the assignment.

What is an assignment? An assignment is shooting a series of photos that conform to the theme or topic for the week. Then reviewing the photos and uploading the one best photo that meets the requirements of the topic.

Once you have completed the assignment and upload your one best shot to the album created for the event. Please only post one image.

The purpose of a challenge is to encourage members to photograph subjects they may not normally photograph.  By accepting the challenge they'll use photographic techniques and compositional techniques that they don't normally use.  In return, they'll gain new insights and skills in photography.

Here are a few "Flowers" photos to get you thinking.

Please only upload one (1) image

    Thank you all so much for your help. Last question, I promise... how do I RSVP? I know I'm missing some obvious button and I've seen and used the "I'm going" button before. But since I joined officially yesterday as a supporter, I no longer see that button.

      Hi Barbara, Once an event starts the RSVP Button goes away, but it's still OK to upload photos in the manner I described. Hopefully, you're getting email that announces new events and it has a button you can Click to RSVP Yes. If you're not getting those emails, you need to change your 'Email and Notification' Settings under the My profile tab at the top right of the page. Prior to the start of an event, you can also go to Calendar Pages like this one and Click Yes in the upper right corner of the page to RSVP, but once the event starts that button goes away. However, it's OK to upload photos anyway. It's always good to RSVP in advance, especially if it's a physical Meetup, because those are the only people who will be contacted if there's a change or cancellation to the event. If you upload a photo here, Jeff or I will add your name as if you had RSVP'd.

      Take Care, Jim L

    Sorry, but I'm not sure how to upload an image to this group or where to view the existing images.

      Hi Barbara, since you didn't RSVP for this Assignment, you won't receive the email Skip mentioned, but you can still upload a photo following the instructions I provided. Click on the Photos Tab at the top of this page, find the Appropriate Weekly Assignment Album, Click on it, and then Click on Add Photos towards the upper left of the photo. Please let us know if you have any problems uploading a photo. Thanks, Jim L

    Hi Barbara, I don't have any hot links on my screen as Jim describes, unfortunately. I generally wait for someone to post a picture and then I can post by going through the email. Never understood why I didn't but have no issues with my work around solution.

      Hi Skip, since Barbara didn't RSVP, she won't receive the email you mentioned, however the instructions I gave should work for all albums, since I didn't say to look for a hot link on this page. I'll send you a private message, with more info on this. Thanks, Jim L

    Hi Barbara and welcome to FCCP. To upload a photo to this album, Click on the Photos tab towards the top of this page. Find the album for "FCCP Week 83 Assignment: Assignment Topic: Flowers" and Click on it. A larger image of the album cover photo should appear and you should see the words Add Photos near the upper left corner of the page. Click on those words and you should get an option to browse to the photo on your computer. Note: If you don't see the words Add Photos, make sure you're logged into Meetup and try again. If that doesn't work or if you have any other questions, feel free to make comments here or Click on my name to go to my profile and Click the words 'Send email' to send me a private message. Looking forward to viewing your photos,

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
