It’s a 3-day weekend for us as Piedmont, which is affiliated with the Christian Congregationalist Church, celebrates Easter weekend.

Whether you celebrate or not, capture an element of your 3-day weekend in 3 photos. At least two of the photos should have people, and at least one should include action. Include a cutline for each photo.

You should use your phone for this assignment.

Whatever your doing this weekend — whether it’s hanging around campus, heading to an athletic event, going home to see family, participating in MLK Day activities — capture some highlights that explain an aspect of your weekend in 4-5 photos! Here are the guidelines:

  • Include at least two medium shots showcasing action, drama, expression and/or unusualness
  • Include at least one long shot that sets the environment for what you are shooting
  • Include at least one close-up shot that displays detail

If you need a refresher on the different types of shots, check out the PPT on Canvas.

Post your photos on the blog and be sure to include a caption with each photo. Your post should be completed by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Have a great weekend and see you Wednesday at noon.
