Congrats for making it this far with your Photo 365/Project365! It's called a challenge for a reason! But you might be having a hard time coming up with some ideas...so how about a few from the Learn Photo365 Photography Assignment app to help you back on track!

One of the new assignment additions is a 30 day subject challenge, where it gives you a random subject to photograph for an entire month!
The challenge of course is to find interesting ways to shoot the same subject.
So, how about a....
Now you will obviously need more than one to last you a month. But here are some ideas to get your started:
Backlight, spotlight, sidelight, toplight
Red is the contrasting color to green. So shoot it up against a red pepper. On a red plate
You could also try it against yellow, blue, black and white backgrounds.
Grab a bunch and see what interesting patterns you can make.
Make it a fun game by hiding them in a location and seeing if your viewer can find them.
Since you'll have all those peppers, you might as well make something tasty! Maybe Fajitas?
Try some slow shutter speed shots on a tripod as they are being chopped.
Record the shapes/patterns as they are cut.
Or using backlighting with a flash or bright light on one cut in half to make it glow inside!
If you don't mind the potential smells, you could even record one pepper's evolution as it...uh...changes over the month...

This assignment gives you a random object and technique to shoot it with. It can come up with some pretty crazy combinations!
OBJECT: STOP SIGN
TECHNIQUE: BACK LIT. Shoot the sign with the sun behind it, or if you want to get creative, set up a flash at night
TECHNIQUE: IN PAIRS. Creating interesting compositions with two hammers!
TECHNIQUE: PERSPECTIVE. Make the subject appear large in the frame by having it close to the camera with a wide angle lens.
VERSE TO VISUAL
Illustrate your favourite quote, song lyric, poem, saying, riddle, or book passage with a photograph!
