Any luck in getting those photos? Even just a description?

Personally I would have been tempted to do an extra long exposure with the lens cap on in a dark room.

Nothing is fun
I guess then you could put on a 50mm lens or something even wider- take a photo of the sky late at night ( cloudless night ) and then have a picture of mostly nothing! And it would be your photograph- not something from NASA.

Turn in NOTHING.

When the teacher asks where your assignment is you can simply proclaim...

"I turned in nothing, therefore I am the only one in the class to have done so. All others turned in something which is not nothing. i am waiting for my A++ as I am the only one who understood the assignment."

Case closed.
But then it would just be "nothing", rather than a "PHOTO of nothing".

Nah, the easiest thing to do here is to just take a picture with the lens cap on. And then smear out any noise and clone out any dead pixels.

If you wanna be self-deprecating, do a self-portrait.

I think you got me wrong , I'm neither a comedian or arrogant . So try to do the self-portrait of " Nothing " yourself, I'm sure you'll do a good job.

It's to teach you to think what "nothing" means to you, it's associations and how you might portray that. There are countless ways to portray the concept of nothing if you put your mind to it.

THIS ^^^^^^^^
