Group RulesThe Toronto Star's Camera Club is an online forum on the star.com where photography enthusiasts can share their passion with other photography enthusiasts.
Here's how it works:
We will post regular assignments on a particular theme as part of our online Camera Club. We'll post a video tutorial about the assignment, featuring tips and tricks from one of our Toronto Star photographers.
You can use this Flickr group to take part in the assignment (five photos maximum, please), or to just share your images with other photo enthusiasts. Submissions are approved by an editor before they appear in the group.
Remember to include a caption that says when the photo was shot. Please also tag your images with your name and assignment name (ie., johnsmithsnowassignment).
Each week, our photo editors will examine the photos in our Flickr pool and select the 10 best to display in a photo galley on thestar.com.
If you want your picture to be considered for the photo gallery of the 10 best images, make sure the download option is enabled.
