Your prompt this click is The Golden Hour. The Golden Hour is defined as the first hour of light after sunrise and the last hour of light before sunset. The only requirements are that you take a photograph outside during the Golden Hour. It can be any composition or subject matter you choose. Utilize this soft, golden, natural light to the best of your abilities.
According to the Golden Hour site, our current golden hours are from 6:16 - 6:53 am and 7:18 - 7:55pm. Plan your shoot accordingly.
You will be graded on the following criteria:
Objective/Concept: To what degree do you solve the problem? To what extent do you creatively solve it as an independent thinker? Did you solve it out of convenience, or did you take time to think of a good idea, plan, and then execute it well? Did you think of the problem literally, or did you personalize it and come up with a unique & meaningful response?
Design: How elegantly do you employ a photographic principle of composition, or use a principle of design in your work?
Camera Exposure: How well do you consider and employ proper exposure settings on your camera when taking this picture? Did you use the correct white-balance setting? Is the exposure clean and clear? Well focused?
Presentation: Did you make any necessary adjustments on Photoshop to adjust color or clarity? Is it cropped correctly? Did you upload it to Canvas at the proper image resolution and by the corresponding due date?
This assignment is due to CANVAS on WEDNESDAY, MAY 9TH.
Click is a bi-weekly assignment that asks photography students to explore composition, meaning, technical skills using digital photography based off of a single word or phrase prompt. Students can use any type of camera with digital capabilities, from their cell phones, to point and shoots, to DSLRs. These assignments can be completely open to interpretation, much like a visual journal, or very literal which require students to follow certain directions.
