Advertising Photography Project

Here is the handout for your new photography project.  Also, below I have included several of the examples we looked at yesterday.  Remember, tomorrow, you will be expected to have 8 sketches ready for class – 4 for each of your top two ideas for this project.  (I will be giving points for each sketch completed!)



My Backyard Project – Evaluation

To finalize your project, you will need to do two things:  The first is to copy your image into the project hand-in folder.  Make sure that it is a Photoshop file, not a Camera RAW file.  Secondly, you will need to fill out the following evaluation.  You can complete it digitally by downloading the file linked below and then print it out when you have finishedd. You can also print it out first and fill it out by hand.  Both the evaluation and the photograph are due by Friday.



First Project: My Backyard

Your first assignment is a warm-up assignment:  Something to get you back in the groove, both creatively and technically.  Here are some handouts and a some examples from Minor White.  Don’t forget you can also look up “Abstract Photography” and get a lot of really nice examples of similar photographs.

Also, for those of you who are using your own cameras (which is most of you) – DON’T FORGET TO SET YOUR CAMERA TO CAMERA RAW!  Remember -I will be deducting points from students who shoot JPEGs!

AND, if you remember, please also set your cameras to the Adobe RGB color space as well.  I think you will be very pleased by the results.




Class Syllabus and Camera Loan Letter

This week we went over a lot of things in preparation for your first assignment.  But first off I wanted to upload the handouts from the first day: Attached below are the class syllabus and the loan letter sheet.  If you do not need to borrow a camera, please don’t worry about the loan letter at all.

Welcome to the Advanced Photography Class blog.  This blog will be where I will be posting handout, assignment information, as well as recordings of any demonstrations that I do in class.  It will be a very important resource for you during the class, and you will want to visit regularly.

On the right, you will see a link that says “Subscribe to This Blog.”   I want you to enter your email address so that the blog will automatically send you a notification whenever something important is posted.  Don’t worry too much – it won’t be emailing you every day.  🙂

Once you enter your email address on that page, then go to your email and find an email from my website (it may be in your junk mail folder), and in that email there will be a link.  Click on that link to confirm the subscription.  This is basically just verifying that you are a real person, not a spam program.
