Thursday 10/13/22: Today’s Instructions

Hey everyone, sorry I’m out again. My son is too sick to go to school and I couldn’t get someone else to watch him.

I know I said we would be able to take photos outside today but obviously it will have to wait until tomorrow (Friday).  I will extend the deadline for the Rules of Composition Scavenger Hunt. 

In the meantime, you can continue to work on your rules of composition project.  If you don’t have any more photos to work with or you’re all done, then you can start the Photographer Spotlight Assignment below, which will be due next week.

Be good to the sub, please. See you tomorrow!
