Digital Photography and Arty Trash
trashphotostim.png

Every week each student must take a digital photo of a piece of trash they see lying around the school.
Use all your photographic skills to get the most interesting photo.
Then make the image smaller with Gimp and upload it to our online class Flickr photo album
Remember to add your first name as a TAG.
We will print out the final artwork for the Art Exhibition in week 7.
