Photo Essay Project

Categories: Projects No Comments

Yesterday we talked briefley about our new assignment – and the concept of photojournalism.  This is a section of photography that is one of the most important and dear things to my heart, because it is photojournalism that first brought the idea of photography into my mind as a high school student.  I was immediately influenced by photographers like W. Eugene Smith, Robert Capa, Steve McCurry, etc.

So what I’ve done to get you thinking about Photojournalism and the idea of a photo essay is compiled a series of links and examples.  If you’re thinking of getting started on this project over break, make sure you go through all of this, as I do’t think we have had the proper amount of time for me to truly introduce the assignment.

Visual Research Project for January 31

Alright, everyone – I am out again today because this Flu is a pretty rough one. So what we’re going to do is get moving on our first assignment:  HDR photography.

So here’s what I want you to do.  I want you to go online and research exactly what HDR photography is, find an excellent example of a HDR photograph. You should   Copy that photograph into a Word and then answer the following questions.

  1. What does HDR stand for?
  2. How does a photographer photograph a HDR image?
  3. What are the advantages of HDR imaging?
  4. What are the disadvantages of HDR images?
  5. What kind of subjects seem to be best for HDR?
  6. What are the special features of certain images that make them good subjects for HDR photography?
  7. Brainstorm some places/subjects in Rochester that would good for HDR photography?
  8. What about the image that you chose made it stand out from all the others that you looked at?
  9. What techniques (other than HDR) did the photographer use to make this photograph?  How did the photographer compose the photograph?
  10. What kind of lens do you think the photographer used?  How can you tell?
  11. What other piece(s) of equipment might be necessary to use in order to make an HDR image?

Once you are done, and you have the image pasted into the top of the Word, and you have answered all the questions, print the word doc in color and give it to your sub.
