Summer Break Assignment

Here's the brief; I have to present a single image for each of 10 subjects. They must be creative and I can take as many images as I like but I can only present the 10 best images.
  1. Something cool...
  2. Something you can't touch...
  3. Something small...
  4. Something of my town that would attract overseas tourists...
  5. Something that sells renewable energy...
  6. Something that shows an Australian summer through recreation...
  7. An image that can only mean one thing...
  8. A landscape at dusk or moonlit...
  9. An image where music is the theme...
  10. A publicity image of myself...

At last the fun stuff begins. This is the first "creative" assignment for the course, the previous assignments are to show that you know how to work your camera... I already have some ideas (I can't touch my toes, for example! LOL Seriously; if I can find a rainbow with the moon behind it I may be on to a winner - this will lead nicely into the moonlit landscape). If you come up with any ideas let me know.

These images must be taken on 35mm slide film rated at 100 ISO so the technical side of getting an image to work without any manipulation or post processing comes in to the mix as well.

Now the real fun begins!!!

I cant wait to see what you come up with, sounds really exciting. Although you will be shooting film, I'd love to see the results. Maybe scan some and post up here? BTWay, love your header.

The creative juices are stirring...

The header was taken a few weeks ago at a place near home... This is one of the first attempts. The next night I took the image to school and the instructor told me that last year a first year student won the yearly award with the same image from a slightly different angle. So I'm on the right track...
