Color Photos

  • Create your 20 picture contact sheet and turn it into the Staff server.
  • Edit, Crop, and adjust your pictures in the same manner as your abstracts.
  • Tuesday/Wednesday are color picture shooting days. Bring your cameras.

Stop Motion Pre-Production

Please get in your groups and start planning your production.

1. Please turn in the following information in the STAFF server:
  • Group Member names
  • A four to five sentence description of your animation project. Please tell me what special "tricks" you will create to make your animation look interesting. Also, let me know if you are using props or if the characters are wearing costumes. Most importantly please tell me the story from beginning to end.
2. Create a shot sheet. Write down the different shots you will take and the order you will take them. List the locations as well.
This will ensure you are prepared when you walk in the door Wednesday.
3. Create a storyboard of the first 15 frames.

Have fun!

For this assignment you will shoot all day Friday in class and the weekend. You need to shoot a minimum of 40 different objects in an abstract way.

Please look at the links below for examples of abstract work.

Earth Photography

For this next assignment I want you to throw out all of the "rules" we've discussed in class this semester. This is your chance to be as creative as possible. I would recommend looking for patterns, colors, and shapes when deciding on pictures to take. Also try to think of things you don't normally see pictures of.
