Landscape Photos and Weekend Homework

Today you will learn about landscape photos and then practice taking pictures of landscapes. 

Take notes on the material covered in the links below. USE YOUR NOTES as a resource when you shoot your landscape shots.11 Landscape Hints 
Landscape Hints 2
We will have a note check at the end of the period Thursday.Please leave class today after doing your reading and note taking and go practice taking landscape photos. I would recommend going up to the softball field and shoot towards the Cascades. If some of you want to drive down to the lake that is OK too.
Avoid centering, place objects in the foreground, mid-ground, and back ground. Return to class at 11:45.

Weekend Homework:
 Pick at least one scenic location where you can take pictures.
 Pick a place with water, mountains, trees, or a combination of all of the above. I would recommend Carkeek Park, Kerry Park, or Richmond Beach.

You will shoot at least 24 pictures. Change angles and move all around the location.

You may shoot horizontal and vertical landscape pictures.

Please do not center the horizon line and try to show something in the foreground, mid-ground, and background.

Pictures are due on Monday.
Tuesday is an out of class shooting day. Please bring your camera and make sure you have transportation. Blur: how to take long exposure pictures of the sea using an ND filter
