Can't Believe Summer is Over

Active Assignment Weekly: Aug. 8-15 Back to School


This week take a picture of back to school. This could be a shot of school supplies, kids in their new school gear, an actual school creative.


Dare: In the spirit of school, learn something new about photography and apply it to your shot.

Restriction: No apples by themselves. If it is a prop with another main subject, that is fine.


WIT: This assignment was harder than I expected. My fall back plan was to find a school bus, but they are all corralled behind a tall fence. I did manage to find a position to capture the back end of one of the buses in late day lighting. To work on the dare portion of the assignment I learned a bit more on the techniques of layering and masking by adding the screaming kid in the window. I know that some kiddos are just not ready for school to be starting again.
