Extra Credit Work
In the event of Late or missing work, you may want to do EXTRA work to make up points.
Instructions: (You may do more than one.)
Shoot extra topics and print extra pictures. Each topic/print will be worth 100 points. 1 topics + 1 print = 100 points.
Be sure to shoot 12 pictures of the topic.
Upload to a gallery. Call it YEAR-MONTH-DAY TOPIC MU1 (MU1 = make up 1, 2, etc.)
The topic must be a NEW topic...not a duplicate from a previously shot topic. IOW, you can't do landscape if you already shot it.
Visit one (1) of the following locations
View the photos on display
Take a discrete picture of the overall location (not each piece of work). Most people do not like photos take inside of businesses, so, shoot discretely 1 or two pictures to remember the location and to mark/validate your presence at that spot.
Critique any 5 photos/art pieces at any of the locations (5 = 100, or 20 points per image, even if the initial project was late and only worth 80 points because you were late). The paragraphs should address the 7 steps to Critique a Photo: http://www.pixiq.com/article/doing-a-photo-critique Then write a brief summary over the presentation of all of the photos at that location (i.e. How do the photos add or detract from the location. Why do you think they chose those picture?).
Visit a Art Shows - Listen for announcements from me and/or keep up with the locations below. Art shows, say at the Art Studio, usually have an opening night, where the artists are available to meet the public, press, guests, etc. Refreshments are usually served and it is a great time to meet and greet and shoot pictures of the event. Attend the opening, write a brief summary (a good half page) about the show, your impression, etc.
Commercial Display of Numerous Photos
Pie Wei - Across from HEB on Dowlen. There are 8 very nice images, all part of a series.
McDonalds - Next to Academy. There are 9 large, very interesting photos on display. It is a part of a series.
Jason's - 5 Images on Dowlen location, ~7 at the Gateway location
Baptist Hospital - on College - 1st Floor...numerous large photos and murals are all over the hospital. Walk along the first floor to find about a half dozen very nice pieces of work. While you are there, enjoy a Raos Coffee drink, if open.
Outback - Newly redesigned with all new prints. There are about 7 images. Pick 5 and critique.
If you know of another place with lots of photos on display, let me know...and I will consider adding it to this list. Also, if there are any show openings or "Meet the Artists" at a gallery, you can attend the opening and/or show on any day, and write a summary about the show. Note: You can NOT just pick art work out of a book. These locations and displays are getting you to look at a body of work, and choosing which 5 you want to critique.
Dishman Art Gallery - Lamar
AMSET - one of the best locations as there is always something on display in one of the several galleries.

If you bring back something from the show signed by the guard or other AMSET official, I will count it toward your Magazine Selection Assignment for this 6 weeks or next (or Current Event shooting for CGII+). If you already have a grade, try to go anyway...it is a good event to attend. Take some pictures. photography entries will be on display, and the winners of the award will be announced. Unfortunately, I may NOT be able to attend due to another event I must participate in as part of a team. So, I am counting on many of you all attending to be there to represent West Brook, and support Will on this awesome accomplishment to even be accepted into the show! See the link for directions, etc.
