Spirit Week

Spirit Week:

Take photos of students/staff dressed up for Spirit Week. Place the 5-10 BEST photos in your Gallery.

The subject can be posed, HOWEVER, please avoid putting them against a wall/locker and taking a mug shot. Take the photo of them where they are, or striking some kind of relaxed/natural pose. Should be 5-10 different people. If you take a photo of just a part of them (shoes, bags, etc.) you must also include a head to toe shot so we can see who it is. Both photos together count as one of the 5-10.

Caption: Follow standard caption writing guidelines, except that for this one you’ll be saying that they pose for a Spirit Week photo. Second sentence should explain what they’re wearing.

Example: John Smith (10) poses for a Spirit Week photo during 3rd period in the 3rd Floor East hallway. Smith wore four different colors of clothing for Wacky Day and colored his hair purple.

Take at least 40 USABLE photos (this does not include the photos of room signs or student IDs).
This will be a separate grade for each assignment and will be all or nothing 25 points.
