4-Elements Scavenger Hunt-Phones


  • Applying the Elements of Art in YOUR photography.
  • Using editing features on your phone to enhance and crop photos.
  • Uploading photos from your phone to the computer.

You will use your phone* to capture your photographs for this project. Once you have captured your photographs, you will upload them to your computer. Title each photograph with the element it is meant to capture. Save the 11 photographs in a folder titled: Your Name-Elements Scavenger Hunt

Your focus is the elements of photography. You will have 11 photographs in total to take, each photograph should highlight the element you have assigned to it.
