AP: Color Harmony

Project #2 - Color Harmony

Step 1

Visit the following website HERE to review a short article on Color Harmony as it exists in Complimentary and Analogous color schemes.  Create a Digital Journal (more detailed notes) using a program of your choice and add these definitions.  
Find 3 visual examples of each online and paste them into your Digital Journal.


Select only four themes from the list below and photograph in color—THINK IN COLOR
Take 5 solid examples of each of those photos.  You will have total of 20 photos completed for this assignment.

1.            Reflections in chrome or other reflective surface           
2.            Reflections in water
3.            Store window reflections (e.g., an antique or consignment store)
4.            Light through a window
5.            Motorcycle close-up or car engine close-up
6.            Architectural detail
7.            Dual portraits of your friends
8.            Lines and patterns
9.            Foreshortened image
10.          Close-up of texture
11.          Silhouette
12.          Motion/Panning
13.          Perspective

Create a contact sheet and make sure to include which 4 themes you chose for this assignment anywhere in the negative space on the contact sheet.  Save it as a JPEG and name it _AP color.
Turn in 1 photo for printing and name it _print2 

All of these pictures are due on Monday, October 26th. You can have shooting days on Oct. 21 and Oct 23. You will probably shoot hundred of pictures for this assignment.

Your grade for this assignment will be based on several factors:
  • Completion of each image turned in on a contact sheet.
  • Turned in on time (formative)
  • The quality and creativity of your 20 best images
  • Your choice of which photos to possibly use for your portfolio (summative).
