Everyone has bad pictures, but few of us actually TRY to take bad pictures. So in this assignment, the goal is to take a picture of something recognizable, but manipulate lighting and movement to make it unrecognizable. If you want to take a bad selfie, the goal can be to distort your face and surroundings so that you look like a different person. Post it to your blog and have people try to guess what/who the picutre is of. You suceeded in the assignment if nobody can recognize you or the subject of your photo. Have fun!
