This one is a lot easier than it looks. Most SLR cameras have the ability to do this. This assignment will help you learn more about your cameras features. I am sure you can find a wealth of information on how to do this online. Here are the basic things you need to do:
1) You will need a tripod or a solid place to put your camera.
2) low light in a must. Take these at night.
3) Play with your exposure length. Try shooting at 1, 3, 5, 10 or even 30 minutes. I have done some or stars I let it stay open for an hour.
4) Be creative and have fun.
I will post a new assignment about every 2-3 weeks.

In this game CW and I got 10 kills in the warthog before we died. In this picture I was invisible with a gravity hammer crouched down so the warthog could not see me and just as it passed I hit the warthog causing it to fly across the screen then walked over and hit it again for a double kill. I ended up with 12 medals for this game.

Since its Christmas time we are going to make this one a Christmas theme. 1-2 pictures of Christmas at a different angle. Use perspective to show Christmas. I don't just want a picture of a tree or some lights. Maybe some close ups or looking through a tree. The key is interesting Perspective. Deadline Monday Dec 17th. Since this is Christmas the winner will get a gift and I will let my wife wrap it so it looks good.
The picture above is a great example from Ashley and if she submits this the bar for this challenge will be set high.

I have always enjoyed the Daft Punks but this video has to be one of the coolest thing I have seen in a long time. It just goes to show that you dont need millions of $$$ to make a great video just be creative.
Make sure you watch to the end its crazy how fast it gets

Silver Brickwall LEGO Ring
We love LEGOs, and in honor of their recent 75th anniversary, we thought we'd mention this Silver Brickwall LEGO Ring ($80). The sterling silver ring features the familiar 2x2 LEGO pattern, and comes with six different color pieces to snap to the ring, adding versatility to an already cool package. (Thanks Uncrate)
