Make your adjustments in sequence so when you import to IPhoto you can see the subtle, but noticable changes.

Please bring the $20 lab fees Monday.

Reading Lessons

Good afternoon. I am out sick again. The reading assignments are listed below. Please take notes as you go along, as there will be a test on the information. When you are done with each section take the quiz. You will need to know the material, so don't even think about tking the quiz first.
(Look at further examples at bottom of page, http://cybercollege.com/comp_ex.htm)

This should take you about an hour to read all of these and take the quizes. You may need to read the section of F-Stops and Shutter Speed twice. Any reading not completed today is homework.

When you are done please open IPhoto and create new folders for the following composition examples: framing, leading lines, rule of thirds, color contrast, leading the subject, and conveying meaning through colors and tone.

Use the remainder of the period to shoot examples for the above compositions using your cameras. You may work quietly around the school. Your homework will be to get 5 shots for each composition section listed above.

Please email me if you have questions.
I should be around to answer any questions in near real-time.

Mr. Mitchell
