Hi I'm not quite sure what module 1 photo project is asking for. Do I have to get a tennis ball and do the same? what is the purpose of the first shot?

 

thanks in advance.

Hi Wayne,

No need to use a tennis ball, any ball of any size will do for this assignment.

The key is to make your shot as creative as you can by choosing an unusual camera angle, good composition and an interesting light. By working with such a simple subject as a ball it challenges the student to think carefully about the execution of the shot, not just to take a simple snapshot.

David.
