Re: Re: Assignment 1 – Tiles

Thanks for submitting you first assignment.

It’s always a pleasure to see what people have submitted for their first image.

You’ve found something that is exceedingly mundane and you’ve tried to make it look interesting.

You maybe have bitten off more than you can chew here. Trying to make a straight black line look interesting is very challenging and you’ve done well.

The goal of this assignment is to get you to think about seeing the world like this ALL the time. See the world from the perspective of a photographer. Always be thinking how can I shoot this so that it’s more interesting, more dynamic, and more fun!

Here are some examples of how photographers have taken simple lines and made them really interesting to look at:
