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.
