The purpose of the Monthly Photo Assignment is to create and share our artistic expression with the use of photography, through an assignment-based initiative. Please help your fellow photographers by providing constructive critiques and criticisms with the pursuit of become better photographers as our primary goal.


  • New Pictures Only - Please help maintain this board as a learning tool for the photographers who participate. Only pictures taken during the assignment month may be submitted. Images outside the deadline won't be entered into voting
  • Montage techniques are allowed by should be functional and kept to a minimum - Your entries for the monthly assignment should highlight your photographic skills, not your software knowledge
  • Must follow Meetup Rules - All photo submissions must follow the rules set forth by, the Ann Arbor Shutterbugs group organizers, and be tasteful in nature. Images of questionable nature may be removed without notification

EDIT - removed constraints on image size. Meetup does not limit the size of image submissions, therefore, feel free to upload your image at your desired size.


  • To submit an entry, post your image to the ­PHOTO FOLDER, and can be found by clicking on the word 'Photos' from the menu banner above. Click on the Add Photos link. After submitting an entry, click on the 'add a caption' button above the photo, and create a caption which adheres to the following format:

    "<assignment title>" - "<image title>"

    Examples where assignment title is Smoke -
    Smoke - A Fireman's Duty

    Smoke - Smoke Rings

    In addition to the image, you may include any information you'd like to share with the group as to how you captured, created, or edited the image, by adding a comment to the photo. It is not required however.

  • New Photo assignments will be posted on the 1st of every month - Included in the body of the posting will be information regarding the month's assignment, including any special considerations or guidelines specific to the assignment. Submissions must be received by the end of the 20th day of the month to be considered. On the 21st, a new discussion item will be posted, and will include all entries for the month.


  • Submissions will be closed on the 20th of each month, and voting will begin on the 21st - A new topic will be created to indicate the voting for the month is currently in progress, and will lead participants to the poll for the month's voting within Due to the constraints of the meetup system, voting for your favorite image will be conducted by selecting the title of the image of your choice from the poll. It is our desire to keep all material regarding the assignment within the confines of so old assignments can be viewed by future members.

  • Users are encouraged to engage the photographer through the discussion so others can share in any shared lessons or techniques.

    I look forward to seeing some great work, and sharing with all of you!

    Best wishes, and let's have some fun.
