Take a photo that incorporates reflection and upload it with a reflective caption to Flickr by Sunday night, 1/24. 

From the National Geographic "Your Shot" website: "Not only must your photo have a reflection in it, but your caption must also be reflective in some way. For example, how does the reflection in the photo make you feel? what memory does it spark? what statement does it make? what were you thinking when you shot the photo?"

In September you either updated your photography portfolio website (or created one). Now it's time to update that site with your best work from the semester. Required elements:
  • an updated "about me" section
  • at least three different categories of your photos
  • a slide show that displays not only your best work but shows a variety of types of photos (5-10 photos)
  • a blog entry where you discuss something that you've learned about photography in detail, illustrating with 2-5 photos that you've taken this semester
  • a link to your Flickr photostream
  • optional: video that illustrates some fundamental principles of photography

Make a gift for the holidays. Next week we will take photos of the making process: the materials you used to make the gift, you while making the gift, and a photo of the finished gift.  

For some inspiration check out Pinterest's DIY photo projects or look at more Pinterest ideas for Christmas.

And here are some DIY gift ideas from previous photo classes.
