Project Description

Capture a landscape shot featuring a decisive moment

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to capture a landscape shot that features a decisive moment. This could be a bird flying across the sky, the movement of a wave crashing against a rock, or simply a subject in the distance engaging with the landscape. When composing your shot consider the following:

  • Lighting
  • Weather
  • Subject Matter
  • Point of View

You're encouraged to explore various ways to make this image unique, to create your own decisive moment.

DELIVERABLE

Begin by uploading the name of the location you want to photograph. Include a drop pin on a map so that other students can see where you're exploring! Finish your project by uploading your decisive moment landscape shot. Include any process shots in between.
