Project Description

Capture shareable photos of a party scene.

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to capture shareable photos of a party scene!

You'll need just 4 things for this project:

  • a camera (use a DSLR to make the most of the lessons, but an iPhone camera can also be used to practice the lessons in the second part of the course)
  • a background (something to shoot on, anything from a whiteboard to a distressed wood table to a neutral colored tablecloth)
  • content (food, crafts, DIY projects, etc.)
  • lights or lightbox

Set up your lighting and composition and capture a set of 3 photos with 3 different settings. Then, share your photo set in the project gallery! 

DELIVERABLE

Share 3 photos with 3 different settings.
