3. Pick an images that lends itself to this project. "Usually" something with a lot of white space will work best. High contrast images like the one you used in the Warhol assignment would be a good idea. You can't use the same image you used for the Warhol assignment. You can also make an image from just brushes. Be sure it is "thoughtful".

4. Be creative, have fun!!!

From Mr. P's Photo Rubric

Is you image original, innovative and daring, or just another example of the same old thing? Does it fulfill the requirements for the assignment (see assignment requirements above) ?

Have you used the appropriate elements and principles of design that would enhance your photograph or did you just shoot what was in front of the camera? Have you used good composition or did you just place the center of interest in the center because it was easy?

Camera Techniques: Is the image sharp/in focus? Is the exposure correct? Was the appropriate aperture/shutter speed used (if applicable for your camera), did you find the best angle?

Computer Techniques: Is the image sharp/in focus? Is it resized correctly? Is it color corrected and sharpened?

Presentation: Is the artwork presented in a professional manner as outlined in the assignment?

Good luck
