Read the following article and write the answers to the below questions in your notebook-
The 18,000 wedding photograph
1. Why did the advertising agency want to use the photograph?
2. What would you have done in that situation, if an agency wanted to use your photograph?
3. Did you think the photograph in the story was worth that amount of money?
Write a creative short story in your notebook about the photograph above. The story should be at least two paragraphs long, and include who, what, where, and when. Look at clues within the photograph regarding who the girl may be, why the photographer took this picture, and where she was when the photograph was taken.
Your assignment today is to create two powerpoint slides on a photography career, as indicated by your computer number on the attached sheet.

When you are done with your slides, you are to email it to me at email@example.com and we will do a presentation on the various photography careers, with you presenting your specific slide.
