Photography and AP 2-D Students:

Please take a photo based on the prompt "Snow Day". This photo can be taken inside or outside, but needs to be a creative interpretation of "snow day". It is fine to take the photo with your phone, but the final image should show thought in using a creative camera angle and utilitzing compositional strategies such as rule of thirds, framing, leading lines, etc. Your photo may be a candid moment, an interesting observation, or a staged setting.

*Please be prepared to show your work when your return.
