Abstract Photography Hints

4.  Look for subjects that showcase pattern and repetition.
5.  Look for interesting color combinations.
6.  Look for reflections.

70 Great Examples

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 take pictures of things you don't normally see in pictures.

Turning in Your Photomerge Pictures

Today you will turn in Photomerge CS3.
You will then merge all of your new pictures.
Next you will edit all of your merged pictures in Photoshop.

At 11:15 you will turn in your best five Photomerges on a Contact Sheet. This Contact Sheet must contain at least one picture from each day of shooting.
You will also turn in your best Photomerge for grading. I will discuss printing the Photomerges in class.

Photomerge Grading:
1. Photomerege needs to look like one picture. Colors and objects in pictures should blend together perfectly without any errors.
2. Photomerege should showcase rule of thirds and foreground, mind-ground, and background subjects just like a landscape photo.
3. Photomerge should showcase an interesting location. Picture should look like something you would see in a calendar or framed on a wall.

How To Import Your Stop Motion Pictures Into Adobe Premiere

First, make sure your pictures are organized by day (make a separate folder for each day's pictures).

Select on just one of your pictures that you took for this project. Right click 'Get Info.' You'll notice that the dimensions are listed under more info.
Write these dimensions down.

Open Adobe Premiere. Create a new project (File>New>Project) and name it Stop Motion. Click OK.

Select Digital SLR>1080p>DLSR 1080p30 and name your sequence. DO NOT CLICK OK YET.

 Select the settings tab at the top and you should see an area that says Video and then frame size. Change the frame size to match the picture dimensions.

Go to Adobe Premiere>Preferences in the upper left hand corner and change the Still Image Default Duration to 3. (If your pictures play too slow after changing these settings try changing them to 2).

Next, go to File>Import and your picture folders. Note: import each day of photos in their own folders. DO NOT MIX THE PHOTOS.
 Drag the picture down to the timeline. You can now see all of your pictures in a row.Time to edit!
