Your goal is to use an album cover or movie poster as an inspiration for your own work. You will select an album cover/movie poster and try to recreate it with yourself or someone you know to the best of your ability. This homework assignment will be shot outside of class or in and edited in class with photoshop. Get creative! Get Funny! A farce of the photo can be just as good as recreating perfectly. Make sure you run your idea by me to get either your album cover or movie poster approved first (as there are some out there that probably aren't appropriate for school...)
ou 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 JANUARY 6TH.
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.
