Lab Time and Final Project Working Day:

As you are (hopefully) realizing, the Final Project for this class has a series of steps. Each should be done with planning, intention, and time. As soon as you come into class:

1. Upload and archive all your images from “thing” and “place” photoshoots.

2. Create a set of contact sheets with every image you shot for this assignment. Do not edit out your mistakes, crop, or adjust any of the images.

3. Print out the contact sheets and circle (with a visible marker or pen) the images you think are strongest and put them into your plastic presentation binder.


IN CLASS: Informal Critique of student’s progress. EVERYONE PARTICIPATES.


HOMEWORK: FINISH YOUR FINAL PROJECT:

Make sure you follow all steps and get it right! Refer to project packet for detailed instructions.

PERSON.jpg

Photograph the person. Remember, no direct images of the face. You must photograph a minimum of 75 – 100 shots for this photograph. You may of course shoot much more than that, which I highly recommend.In addition, and like we did in class today, for the “person” shoot, do the following:

1. Upload and archive all your images.

2. Create a set of contact sheets with every image you shot for this assignment. Do not edit out your mistakes, crop, or adjust any of the images.

3. Order the proof sheets in the order you shot each image.

4. On the contact sheets circle the images you think are strongest and put them into your plastic presentation binder.

5. Select your three strongest images from the entire series of shoots. Print all three. In addition, and print your three-image piece, or triptych (think about what we did for the “Depth of Field Assignment” and create this, without the captions).  

Final Project Order

Image size and all presentational decisions should support your conceptual framework.

6. Be prepared to present and speak about your work next week during our final critique. Any projects not completed at the beginning of class will receive an F. You may not be printing when class starts. Points will be deducted for lateness (one point per one minute late).

Refer to the Project 4-Conceptual Portraiture for entire instructions on project assembly (get a binder if you haven’t yet). Email me (before the project due date) if you have ANY questions. 

FINAL PROJECT ORDER:

You should bring to class with you a binder with plastic sleeves, and the following components of this project printed and included inside of it (in this order).

  1. The cover should be the triptych (three photos) on one page.
  2. Next should follow each image (3 in total). First should be the portrait of the person without showing their face, second should be the “place”, and third should be the “thing”
  3. Your Photography Development Templates (drawings)
  4. Your marked Contact Sheets
  5. An extra plastic sleeve for your Visual Analysis Essay (to be turned in next week before the final exam).
  6. An extra sleeve for your disk (to be turned in before the final with your Visual Analysis Essay.  If for some reason your computer does not have a disk burner, I approve bringing your essay in on a flash drive, HOWEVER, it must be on the drive, and transferred to my computer on the day of the final exam, so double check that it is on the drive. You can also email the essay to me (ms46@sunywcc.edu) In addition to a digital version, remember to print out the essay!
