  • 1. 1. Visit: http://www.alphabetphotography.com/ 2. From the site: This unique form of alphabet art is the process of photographing everyday objects that resemble letters of the alphabet, then arranging the photographs in a collage to create any name or word. Alphabet Photography Inc. is the original and leading company in the letter art industry, and boasts the largest collection of photographs collected from around the world. 3. Your project will focus on spelling a word according to a theme. 4. First, pick a theme. State this in a single word that is at least (six letters, no more than fourteen). 5. Take pictures that correspond to this theme. For instance, if my word was P-L-A-I-N-F-I-E-L-D, I might take pictures around the high school. 6. Your letter pictures should match your theme! 7. Edit these photos: • • edit to emphasize the letter • use high contrast and exposure, shadow/highlight, and photo filter • 8. choose color, b&w or sepia (or color tint) combine the letters to spell the word make a PowerPoint that includes: • standard parts of a PowerPoint presentation (like our other projects) • one slide with all the letters combined • individual slides with individual letter pictures
