App Description

Taking on a 365 day photo challenge and running out of ideas?
Want to improve your photography?
Trying to get out of a creative rut or just want to try something new?
Then the Photography Assignment Generator App for iPad is perfect for you.
This is a completely unique app about IDEAS and INSPIRATION for taking photographs, not about filters, effects, or sharing!

OVER 100 INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENTS AND THOUSANDS OF POTENTIAL RANDOM ONES Everything from camera settings, rules of composition, creative shooting techniques, photographing people, landscape and nature, and more subjects. Random objects and places, combined with techniques, environments, offer you hundreds of thousands of possibilities. The scavenger hunt assignment gives you lists of terms to find with your camera…with MILLIONS of possible combinations. You can choose from the list, or have the app give you one at random. Doesn't matter if you shoot Nikon, Canon, Pentax, or Sony, this app will keep you shooting.

Each assignment has a series of example images to demonstrate the technique or inspire you.

Taking part in a 365 day challenge? Get the app to send you a reminder each day to get your photo assignment to keep you on track.

The app is completely self-contained and does not require a wifi or network connection. No matter where you are, you can always get an assignment. NOTE: Due to the huge amount of content, the app must be downloaded over wi-fi or through iTunes on your computer.

I've started a Flickr group for sharing the great photos you have taken using the app! Please join up and contribute here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/photoassignmentapp/

(It is the iPhone/iPod version, but it is identical in features/appearance)

As a firm believer people should be able to try before they buy, there is also a FREE version available for the iPad as well. It contains just a fraction of the assignments available in the full paid version, but should be enough to make you want it all. (make sure it's the one that says "For iPad" the other version is for iPhone/iPod)

iPhone/iPod version
There is also a version of this app on the app store that is made to run on iPhone/iPod touch if you prefer to have a more mobile version.


For those shooting with their iPhones or iPod touches, there is a version tailored for you, the iPhotography Assignment Generator for your device. It removes the assignments for camera settings, lenses, etc these devices don't have, and also contains tips for getting better images with your device and popular apps Instagram and Camera+. You will find it under more apps by this developer on the left.
