Using your phones camera or whatever camera you have available Lets create a image with hard shadows. This week we should be getting more sunlight that we have in the past few months, take this opportunity to use that sunlight to create a cool photo. You don’t have to be outside to create this, but being in direct sunlight creates optimal results. You could use a really bright light in your own home and not go outdoors at all.

The key is finding a cool object to create the shadow as you can see I used this laundry basket and had my daughter pose right in front of the sun. The laundry basket had holes that created a cool effect. I used my phone and I edited the photo on my phone as well. Your photo will need to be submitted to Google Classroom by Thursday April 9th.
