You have seniors in your school who will enjoy posing for this assignment. Consider everything you're learning about light, lines, texture and composition and you'll end up with some great photos.
Tip: USE A TRIPOD. Nothing ruins a great photo like camera shake. Don't risk blurry photos. Use a tripod.
Look around and you'll find interesting patterns and lines everywhere. Looking with a photographer's eye can can you find an abstract image in the real world?
One place to look is in the school parking lot. Use your macro setting and get up close to shoot some tail light lenses. Look for water drops on paint and reflections on glass to find color, light and patterns.
What is the perfect background? Most are sized at 1024x786 pixels or larger and have interesting shapes and patterns. Some are landscapes or funny scenes. Find yours and you can upload it to Flickr's collection.
Backlight, sidelight, complementing colors, contrast... In this lesson you'll explore how to use light and color to make your images exciting.
Our eyes are naturally drawn to different color combinations and images with depth of contrast created by light and shadow. You can use both to create interesting photographs.
Your final project will be a photo essay. First we'll take a look at photo essays from other photographers. Then you will create your own photo essay. Your work in this assignment will showcase much of what you have learned in this course.
