If you have an object that is not growing in the ground and can be moved bring it inside and photograph it on a white piece of paper or a white sheet to keep your background clean.  Experiment with changing your photos by cropping and experimenting with the color and saturation tools in the photo editor. Upload three different photos of the same object into Google Classroom.  Pick your favorite of the three photos and upload it to Artsonia. Add a title and your artist statement that answers the questions 
  1. What is it
