In this discussion, we continue our quest to find beauty in the most mundane objects and places. For most people, picking a subject to photograph is difficult unless your teacher gives you a specific theme or image. This discussion aims to help you understand how artists/photographers choose their subject. It also aims to help you SEE beauty in everyday things, ordinary activities, or people. For this discussion, here is the process:
- Watch all 4 videos below.
