Zack Arias and the DEDPXL

Missing here! Yep! Baby girl born, so very little time to write, shoot (anything else that is not her and the brother and the mother πŸ˜‰ ), or sleep!!

Zack Arias' DEDPXL

Zack Arias’ DEDPXL

Recently I found the new project from Zack Arias, the DEDPXL. A bit of background before.

Zack Arias inspires me in his “no bullshit” stile. He has a nice story and a very nice approach. His approach can be seen in the two short videos in the bottom and his story also in a nice chat with Chase Jarvis. Worth watching.

Now back to DEDPXL. Zack is proposing monthly photographic assignments. The first month was LINES. After the deadline he makes a critique of what was sent (you can submit in Google+, Flickr, 500px …). The first critique is long, but very good.

The second assignment is SHAPES and PATTERNS and it’s out until April 25th.

The main requirement is that it MUST be new material. Not something you shot before, but shot in this period.

Even not submitting shots (I really had no time to do the shooting, but for one of the ideas), thinking about it and trying to come with concepts is already very nice.

For the lines assignment, I first thought I had a great concept: strings of a bass, but I really had no time to develop it further and at the end the critique has showed way better concepts (way worse also … πŸ™‚ ).

I couldn’t work on the shots, barely looked at them. I’ll do that soon and probably post the best one here, together with whatever I come out for assignment 2. Let’s see.
