Final Project Possibilities

Categories: Projects No Comments

Okay, here is a tally of the ideas that you all came up with today.  Look at these topics and think about them for the weekend.  We’re going to vote on them Monday and then start preparing for the project.

  1. Things forgotten
  2. Human feelings & emotions
  3. Public Service Announcements
  4. Modern Fairy Tales or Myths
  5. Superstitions/Rituals
  6. Reflections (?) – Interesting idea, but not specific enough – anyone have any ideas to make this better?
  7. Phobias
  8. Opposites that attract/Odd couple or strange pairs of people/things.
  9. Growth – developing, changing in society
  10. People with dual personalities/different emotions or reactions in situations?
  11. Shadows (?)
  12. Fashion through the years (generational)
  13. Social Issues – Not specific enough – can we have some people get some more specific ideas for this?
  14. Warping Reality – specific how can a photographer change what you see or how you view objects
  15. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure


The Human Condition Assignment

Categories: Projects No Comments

This weekend, you will be photographing the Human Condition project. Below is the assignment handout, as well as a few examples. Remember our conversations this morning, and also remember that you will most likely have to re-shoot next week a little bit. Note that a couple of the example images have 3 images – don’t be confused: You do NOT have to do three images, only 2. However, 3 images is a possibility for some of you, if your idea works out that way.

Nature Photography Evaluation

Below is the Nature Photography project evaluation. You can print it out and write in your answers, or download it and type your answer in. If you wish to type your answers directly into the handout, use the WORD DOC format below. If you just wish to download the form, print it forst, and the hand-write your answers in, download and print the PDF file. Make sure you use the HS-A02-BW1 printer! (To save the color printer’s ink supplies.) The whole project is due next Tuesday, right before Thanksgiving.

Expressive Portrait Project

This weekend you will be photographing your expressive portrait assignment. We’ve spent days talking about it, so hopefully you have a good idea of what you want to do. Remember the following requirements, though:

  • 120 shots minimum
  • 2 models maximum (in that first 120 shots)
  • No pets, and no children
  • Bonus points for a model over the age of 55

And here are a few examples for you to look at from previous students:

For reference, here is the project handout, as well as the Elements and Principles handout that I gave you in class:

Project One: Ordinary to Extraordinary

This weekend you will be shooting your first project! In this post, I have uploaded the assignment sheet, as well as some of the examples we looked at in class. Also, for those of you shooting with your own cameras, please see if you can change your camera settings to save your images as a RAW file (instead of JPEG). This will give you much better quality. If you don’t know how to do that, look it up online – it should be a very simple process, but it is extremely important!
