So, my mom bought me a DVD and course book for Intro to Photography. It's done by a National Geographic photographer. I just started it last night. It may be really interesting. The first lesson is whether something is picture worthy. Also includes the direction that sometimes it's better to ignore the photos and just experience what is going on at the moment.

I still have to complete the assignment. It's kind of hard because I don't have a "favorite" room. And there is certainly no activity going on in whatever room I choose since I live alone with no animals. I may have to see if it's windy out. Maybe I should just take my camera to the gym - lol

You may pick up some tips and tricks but in photography nothing is gospel.
Everything is interesting... look closer.

I suspect the assignment to take pictures in your favorite room is just to get you to practice taking different pictures within one area. Trying different point of view, up close, far away, different angle, down on your belly shooting up, standing on a chair shooting down. I suspect they are just training you to "see" a thing from different points of view so you can get a feel for what captures it best.

Lots of people walk up to a tourist location and just point the camera at what they see and click the shutter. The really good pictures are taken by people who spend a little time looking at the thing from different angles and at different times with different light.

Check out my picture of the Rosetta Stone. It's actually pretty bad, but I think it's way better than the pictures everyone else there got.
