Lesson 8 Assignment: Lesson 8: Stage it!

In this lesson you need to take 1 photograph.

This lesson is about finding a way to reproduce something you imagine in your mind onto your camera's film or CCD chip. It could be a scene from a day dream or just something you think up on the spot. Try to use your imagination to ensure it's as dramatic as possible. You have complete creative control of this photograph. You're not waiting for a decisive moment, and you can place anyone or anything in any position you wish. Use your imagination and have fun. Think about costumes, dramatic lighting, contradicting items, dark gloomy themes, bright, overexposed themes. Below are some more examples to get you thinking.

Notice how in the example below the photographer used a slow shutter speed to create the creepy effect of a ghost in the door.
