Project Description

Shoot 1 outdoor photograph that captures sunset, night, or sunrise

ASSIGNMENT

Your goal is to capture sunset, night, or sunrise. Head into your backyard, find a local park, go for a hike, or embark on a camping trip. The important thing is to immerse yourself in the outdoors. I want you to explore, experiment, and try new things. Going through this assignment is a hands-on opportunity to see how the time day impacts the equipment you use, to think about light sources, and to explore new ways for editing your photos.

DELIVERABLE

Upload 1 outdoor photograph that captures either sunset, night, or sunrise. (If you're looking for a challenge, upload all 3!)
