Class Shooting Assignments - during class
Please review this page for shooting assignment details and reminders PRIOR to your assigned shooting days.
Most of your photography will be done OUTSIDE of class. There are only so many things you can shoot on campus. We only shoot a couple of times in the first semester during class. Then, when we switch to digital in the 2nd semester, you will shoot more as you shoot for each related computer project. You will shoot first with film, shooting one roll of film on campus. This will be processed at a commercial lab...and you will then print your pictures in the darkroom. The 2nd shooting will again be on campus in Focus 3.
Film Shooting - First semester
Students will shoot on commercial film, to be processed at Sams. Students will then use the film to print pictures in the darkroom.
Photograms - End of Focus 1. Although not technically FILM, you will be making pictures.
PinHole Cameras - Beginning of Focus 2. - Shooting with a Quaker Oats Canister.
Digital Shooting - 3rd 6 weeks and 2nd semester
We will shoot 5-6 times in the 2nd semester with the digital cameras. When shooting with the digital cameras, you may bring your own camera if you have a DSLR...but only if you can keep it VERY safe. Digital shootings will be uploaded to PicasaWeb.
Interpretative Shooting Scavenger Hunt -End of Semester I...Intro to Digital SLRs. Final project turn in will not be until the 2nd semester.
Portrait - to be shot just prior to Valentines Day kicking off the 2nd semester. You will shoot in teams of three with each person getting the chance to be the model, the photographer and then lighting assistance.
3 Views - To be shot shortly after valentines Day of various still life's in and around the room. Bring objects that you would like to photograph.
Motion - to be shot during Focus 5 over various motion events around campus. This will be a lesson in varying the shutter speed to render such special effects as ghost images and panning with moving objects. We will shoot in the gym and in the cafeteria, as well as weather permitting outside (actually for this, it needs to be overcast to get a slow shutter.)
Magazine Cover - We will shoot in the Focus 5 for the cover art of the front of your magazine.
Photostory - Shooting for the Photostory can come from any photos you have taken all year, but we will also go out and shoot just for this assignment one last time.
Polarizer Filter - If time and weather permits, we will shoot with polarizers in conjunction with one of the above shoots.
Film shooting - Focus 1/2 - One roll of film
Shoot and process one (1) roll of Black and White film. Shoot for Good B&W/Contrast. - Be sure to complete a shooting log while shooting your roll of film
Make contact sheet & print pictures in the darkroom.
Final Turn in includes 8x10 print(s), plus your contact sheet and shooting log. Prints should exhibit effective composition, like good depth of field, fill the frame, or unusual perspective and be sufficient black & white tones with appropriate contrast. Film should be shot OFF CAMPUS during the first week of the 6 weeks (2nd week for 1st 6 weeks). Film cameras will need to be checked out for home use. You MAY shoot ahead of the 6 weeks...like If pictures are NOT taken by the end of the 1st week, students will be permitted to Print for ATPI due in time for the contest, final turn in during Focus 2.
