Reference photo must be shot specifically for this Art Dare!  Don’t use a photo you already have. Think first about what image you want to create.  You can create a set up with specific environments, objects, lighting to get the visual look you want. We recommend shooting your subject from different points of view, and to shoot a minimum of 30 photos so you have plenty to choose from.
