Spring Quote Assignment

Spring Quote Assignment

Photo 2: Spring Quote Assignment

 



Spring Quote Asisgnment

http://decideforyourself.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/spring2.jpg

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." 
-- Margaret Atwood

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours. ~Mark Twain

I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers: Of April, May, of June, and July flowers. I sing of Maypoles, Hock-carts, wassails, wakes, Of bridegrooms, brides, and of their bridal cakes. 
Robert Herrick

You will shoot two contact sheets based around two quotes about the spring season. In other words, pick your quotes and shoot pictures for those quotes.
I will list a few websites where you can find some quotes about spring, or you can find your own.

  • First, pick your two quotes.
You will have an in class shooting day on Thursday.
You will shoot pictures over spring break.
Contact sheets are due at the end of each of these days.
 After break you will have class time to adjust these pictures.

Many spring quotes are directly about the seasons and nature. However, you will find many quotes that also deal with events or sports that take place during spring time like weddings, music festivals, baseball, and golf etc. You also may find quotes that talk about spring cleaning, BBQ's, family gatherings, Easter, and Mother's Day etc.

Spring Quotes






You may also use a quote from spring poems.

Don't forget, you can also try to find your own quotations as well.

Greyscale Editing

Good morning. 

 Photo 2 students: please find two partners and teach them all the greyscale adjustments methods from last semester.
 Go step by step and have the other students take notes.
 These include Calculations, Ansel Adams, Basic Channel Mixer, Basic Black and White, and Duotone.
Edit 6 candids in grayscale today. Do not turn these pictures in yet.
Also, please work through the tutorials below.

Tomorrow is a Candid Off Campus picturing taking day.
I will try to arrange it so that students can use Highlander Home time to take pictures.
You must have a C or better to leave campus. Please turn in any missing work right now.

Don't forget your Candid homework assignment is due Thursday.

Photo 2 Candid Photography

http://digital-photography-school.com/11-tips-for-better-candid-photography
http://digital-photography-school.com/make-yourself-invisible-5-tips-for-successful-candid-photography

Your assignment over the next week is  to shoot three contact sheets full of candid photos between now and Tuesday March 8 . 
One of these contact sheets will be shot during class on Thursday March 9th at Shorecrest.You will take candids of students and staff during this day. Some of these pictures could end up in the Yearbook.
The next contact sheet will be homework done at multiple locations of your choice due on Thursday, March 16th.
The next shooting day will Tuesday the 14th and you will shoot at multiple locations of your choice.

SC Candid  due Thursday March 9th.
Candid CS2 due Tuesday, March 14 th.
Candid CS3 (homework) due Thursday, March 14th. 
For each picture you should emphasize a specific composition element other than rule of thirds.
If you need a refresher on composition elements they can be reviewed at:

http://cybercollege.com/tvp023.htm
http://cybercollege.com/tvp024.htm
http://cybercollege.com/tvp025.htm

These include, but are not limited to: frame within a frame, leading lines, color contrast, movement and meaning, multiple levels of meaning, leading the subject, and using light to highlight or enhance a certain section of your picture. Move the camera around. Shoot high and low angles.

For this assignment I want you to get as far away from Shorecrest as possible. Downtown Seattle, Capital Hill, Fremont, and the U District are all great places to shoot "random" people, but Lake Forest Park could be just as effective. Make sure you ask permission to take pictures (especially if you are taking pictures of kids).


Unintentional out-of-focus pictures will not be accepted. If you would like to try a some selective focus shots please tell me before you go out shooting and I can lend you a long lens.

Editing Tourism Assignment

You will edit your ten best Tourism pictures today in Photoshop. Please choose 10 diverse pictures showcasing a variety of subjects in a variety of locations using a variety of composition and elements of design. Please do not use pictures that repeat single subjects if you can avoid it.

Please adjust and edit in Photoshop using the magic wand, quick selection tool, using cropping, burning, dodging, content-aware fill, and clone stamp.
You can also adjust using a variety of Layer Adjustments located just above the Layers palette.

Please try to improve color, lighting, and composition within each photo.

At the end of the period will turn in one 10 picture, 2*5 contact sheet called "Tourism Adjusted." 
You will also turn in your best single picture a a jpeg file. This will be called "Best Tourism Photo."

Sequence Reading and Examples


Group 10-shot Sequence: A sequence is a series of shots connected together as part of a whole scene.



Example 1:




Example 2:




Example 3:



Example 4:



10-12 different action oriented shots

· Insert Shot

· Reaction Shot (cutaway)

Shoot a master shot of the whole sequence beginning to end

· Shoot every shot three different times from three different angles

· Raw Footage will be graded

· Edited video should include fade in/out, title, music, sound effects, and credits over black

No jump cuts

No continuity errors

Do not cross the Axis Line

All shots in focus. 
To receive credit at all on this assignment you cannot have any errors. All groups must edit sequences individually.
