OBJECTIVES: Photography is about communication between the photographer and the viewer. It’s all about the photographer telling their story through an image. So what makes for a great image? The answer can be rather subjective.
WHAT TO DO: After reviewing the rule of thirds, composition guidelines, viewing the YouTube videos and visiting various websites, you are to photograph the following (refer to examples you have found and placed in your sketchbook):
Plan Your Photo Composition (36 works): FILM 1. Hands (such as braiding hair, holding something, working on something) (four works) 2. Feet/Shoes (4 works) 3. Geometric Shadows/Forms (four works) 4. Organic Forms and/or Texture (four works) 5. White on white/eggs (four works) 6. Lines (four works) 7. Glass/transparency (four works) 8. Remainder of photos is your choice
You will turn in darkroom contact sheet to receive credit. We will have a class critique on the prints to help you determine which compositions work best in regard to the rule of thirds and how to photograph your subject with more interesting view points to attract viewers to your compositions.
Print one 8" x 10" of each of your best FOUR photos for your portfolio.
