TIME-LAPSE.

You don’t have to sit still for hours to create a time lapse. A suggestion - put the camera on a tripod and you sit very still while certain things - action! - goes on behind you.

THE BUCKET SHOT.

This one is pretty straight forward. Put the camera down low - on the table or on the ground and take a picture of it looking up at you. This one is all about playing with perspective.

DEPTH.

Create a piece illustrating your understanding of shadow & depth. Feel free to go as big or as small as you want. Challenge yourself and then tell us why it WAS a challenge!

FRACTURED.

Express movement through time in your artistic piece. This can be done through long exposure (a time lapse perhaps?). Or you could stack the images over each other in Photoshop.
