We all have or cameras, iPhone our DSLR. But what photos to take? It's an easy decision at a party or get together with friends. Vacations also tend to provide you with lots of ideas.
But how about just taking pictures for the fun of it? It's a bit harder, and Photography Assignment Generator is designed to help you overcome those mental blahs by giving you a boatload of photographic ideas. The apps are US$2.99 in the App Store for DSLR users, and there is an iPhone version that just supports the iPhone camera for $0.99.
The app comes in an iPhone and iPad version. For this review, I'll concentrate on the iPad version. When you open the app, you are presented with the option to choose a category, or get one at random. Categories include things like Composition, Landscape and Nature, Photographing People, etc. You choose one, and you're presented with tips about photos of that type, and you get some examples with commentary, and some suggested camera settings. If you want, the app can send a daily reminder of a suggested assignment, and there is an option to share your photos with other users of this app.
All in all, this is a clever app, that should get your creative juices flowing. The author, Canadian photographer and teacher Noel Chenier knows his way around the art of photography.
