Project Description

Capture 7 scenes of your neighborhood.

ASSIGNMENT

Share the story of your neighborhood by photographing it in 7 photos. Capture a new moment everyday for 1 week, or take all 7 during a single walk. Look for different moments, perspectives, and subjects, then use editing apps to achieve your desired mood. By working with a subject you love and know well, you'll be able to really focus and grow your skills working with light and composition. Plus, you'll create a meaningful group of photos about a place that has personal resonance for you.

DELIVERABLE

Upload 7 photos of your neighborhood.

Note: If you'd also like to share your photographs on Instagram, be sure to use to the class hashtags: #twheatXskillshare and #skillshare.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCE

  • Download a class resource guide below with links and tips on the editing apps, best practices for contributing to the Instagram community, and more.
