Active Assignment Weekly - Spell it Out


Assignment: I want you to photograph a word (singular). The catch is, you can't write or type the word. So this means put away your pens, pencils, markers, chalk, type writers, photoshop letters etc. To clarify: I don't mind printed letters (ie. letters cut out from a magazine, scrabble letters, kids' blocks etc.) but I don't want you to simply write/type out the word using traditional means.


Restriction: Don't use the word "love". Nothing against it, it is just way overused!


WIT: I had the kiddos make letters out of various items around the house. After photographing them, I placed the individual photos on a texture background and added some drop shadows.

E = buttons on paper

A = chalk on the sidewalk

T = crayons
