In my graphic design class we've been given an assignment called the pet project. My teacher brought various items that he found around his house or at the DI. We had to choose one of these items. I chose a handful of brads. We need to take 10 pictures of our "pet" every week until at the end of the semester our teacher will give us a surprise project that we have to use the photos we have taken to complete. So far, I've learned that taking pictures of little shiny metal objects is really hard to do without blowing out the highlights. Oh well, I'll learn. I'm sure you'll see more of these photos in the future.
