Now Closed

This community is currently closed while the first class is in session. Membership opportunities will open up again in late December for the next class to begin in January. Please return around Christmas and apply then if you are interested.

If you are a member of the class and can't figure out why you're seeing this message, you must sign in first.

Open message to anyone watching and waiting

ANNOUNCEMENT: This community will begin adding members on September 8. The first assignment will be posted for the week of September 10-16. Deadline for posting submissions will be midnight on the 16th.

Please spread the word to anyone who might be interested in joining the first class of photographylab participants. Membership applications will be accepted between September 8 and September 30 only.

Anyone who can submit digital pictures may participate. The type of camera you have and use does not matter. You can use a pinhole camera so long as you can submit digital copies of your prints.

The class will be structured in the following way:
  • Reading assignments will be posted every week, with a photography assignment to accompany it.
  • Whether or not you actually read the article is not something you can prove to us except through the quality of your photos. You are strongly urged to read the assignment, because that is what you came here for. The joint reading assignments are the only thing that really separates this community from any other photography community on the web.
  • The first several joint reading assignments will surround your equipment. We will all be working to get to know our cameras and other equipment.
  • Following the equipment lessons will be a series of creativity and artistic lessons. If you are only interested in the tech lessons, you are not required to stay for the creativity lessons. If you are only interested in the creativity lessons, you will be asked to participate in the tech lessons anyway.
  • At the end of the series, those who have participated in all of the lessons will receive a graduation graphic for use on their journals or profiles. You will be allowed to miss or to skip no more than three weeks, including the first three.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to write me at writerscereal@gmail.com.

Public Sticky Post

Hi! Welcome to the Photography Lab. Glad you're interested.

Right now, we are in the process of forming the community from scratch. You can expect us to start forming the first class over the summer. Please bear with us while we get our ducks in a row.

In the meantime, if you want to be a part of the first class, you can go ahead and "join" the community. It's moderated membership and you won't be approved until we're ready to start. Joining through the profile page is the best way to get in line, because we will cut off the class when it reaches a certain size (not yet determined).
