Create an area on your My Photography Research page titled Photoshop Practice. Post your final photo and a short artist statement (one for each tutorial) into this section.
IMPORTANT ETHICS REMINDER Please remember that a photo belongs to you ONLY if YOU composed the shot and HIT THE SHUTTER. Of course their are exceptions, but in this class it is expected that you follow this rule. If you choose to take self portraits (which make great gifts for family by the way!) you can use the timer function on your phone or school camera, and a tripod. Feel free to use a friend as a 'stand in' while you get your shot set up and focused.
These are due at the end of the week. The studio will be open during SOAR, take advantage of it! :)
Along with your Daily Photos, you will take 4 photos that showcase each of the above lighting setups. Focus on shadows that are visible on your subjects face.
We often hear the phrase "capturing a sense of place." What does that mean to you? To most of us, it means more than just recording the physical attributes of the location. It goes beyond suggesting the time of day or weather conditions. If a photograph is going to give a "sense" of the place, it has to tell the viewer how the artist felt while being there. It has to give us an emotion. It has to show us the head stuff and the heart stuff.
Due to a lack of participation in last week's photo challenge, you will be researching and emulating an artist who focuses on Place. Use the links above to find a photographer, if you can't find one on your own. Choose one of their photos to emulate.
Create a section in your My Photography Research page, titled A Sense of Place. Include your artist's photo and your emulated photo. Add an artist statement below that explains what your photo's have in common, your process, what you focused on, or any other information that is necessary for us to understand your photo.
Care: Professionalism, deadlines, instructions, technical facility
Unique: Creative practice, planning, problem-solving
Technique: Demonstration of the unit artistic element, design principle, or photography skill
Evaluation: Self, peer and industry reflection and critique
You were given a rubric last week. Please submit your rubric on Wednesday, when you are ready for me to grade your portfolio. Post a link to your website on google classroom. Remember, you can resubmit your portfolio for a reassessment.
This week, your photos for your Daily Photos will be centered around the theme of Hygge or Gezellig. Towards the end of the week, you will upload your favorite 3 edited photos to you My Photography page. Remember, just like usual... you will give your photo gallery a title and a reflection.
This coming week, your 'A Photo A Day' theme is movement. The idea is to capture something in-motion, while maintaining quality focus, or intentional blur. This may require you to think about 'peak action' moments. You could play around with Burst Mode, time lapse, or long exposures as well.
At the end of the week you will create a section in your My Photography Page with a single row gallery, with your 3 favorite EDITED images from this week's theme. Remember to give it a title, and a reflection.
