I apologize in advance if today's title is misleading: if you're here for our Friday Photo School then you get an A+ for showing up early! In response to some questions I've had, I wanted to clarify that our photography adventure begins here next Friday--one week from today (my first class is Tuesday!). I'm excited, and I am glad to hear that many of you are, too!

But just in case you arrived, camera in hand and eager to start, I thought it might be fun to give a photographic challenge--a sort of optional, just-for-fun type "assignment." Try, if you dare, to capture your weekend in a single snapshot. If I make this sound unduly daunting, it's just because I have no idea how to do it myself. My weekend involves paint, a backpack, 16 hours in a car, a picnic, an airport, and a new family member, which, photographically speaking, seems to make for a compositional challenge--what, after all, is the subject?

Next week's post will come complete with our first real "lesson" AND a link-up widget should you choose to take today's challenge and wish to share your results.

Enjoy :)

weekend in a snapshot, hmmmmm.
Many things going on: parties, football games, etc. I will ponder upon this assignment and do my best!

That is a really hard idea...I'm gonna have to think about what I would do if I can!

Love the idea of a single shapshot capturing your weekend. Shall do it. P.S. Blogged about you and your awesomeness on Gropius last week. So excited about the seahorses. Thank you for all of your love and care in the creation proces.
