Project Description

Capture afternoon tea in 3 photos.

ASSIGNMENT

Every afternoon, I take a small break to enjoy tea and a biscuit. It's the simplest time of day, and it's my favorite to capture. In this assignment, you'll interpret, capture, and share that same experience—what "afternoon tea" means to you—in 3 photographs that tell a visual story. Lifestyle photography is all about photographing real moments of life in an artistic way, so be sure to use light to shape your mood, and select photographs that reveal different moments of your narrative. Especially around the holidays, capturing these small moments is a welcome reminder of simple things that are truly perfect.

DELIVERABLE

Upload 3 photos telling the visual story of what afternoon tea means to you. A complete project includes:

  • 3-5 inspiration words
  • 3 photographs
  • (optional) brief description of your scene
