It's the war of the Phone Camera. Finally, we as a class will determine which phone has the best camera on the market. Is it the iPhone, an Andriod, or some other phone that totally gets forgotten behind the two empires?
For this click (heh- click) you will take a photo using the camera on your cell phone. (Yes, it has to be the camera on YOUR cellphone - your phone not working? Come talk to me so we can figure out an alternative). You cannot do any editing beyond the basic editing of fixing exposure, lighting, and color, etc. Meaning NO FILTERS can be used on this assignment. You must also use one or more of the Principles of Composition (NO INSTAGRAM PICTURES).
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 Mahara at the proper image resolution and by the corresponding due date?
This assignment is due on MAHARA on NOVEMBER 17th.
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.
