Project Description

Capture one of the compositions we discuss in this course. You can choose between the flat-lay, the "straight-up" shot, and the detail shot. 

Create your own mini studio or head outside and capture one of these shots, then come back to the course and post it here in the student project! Remember that there is no right or wrong here, and feel free to really let your creativity shine. I'm super pumped to see your work!
