Candid Photography

Read these tips:

Your assignment over the next week is  to shoot three contact sheets full of candid photos between now and Tuesday March 8 . 
One of these contact sheets will be shot during class on Tuesday March 1st away from Shorecrest. You will check out of class at 10:00 am and return at 11:55.
The next shooting day will Thursday the 3rd and you will shoot candid shots of teachers and students at Shorecrest
The next contact sheet will be homework done at multiple locations of your choice.

Candid CS1 due Tuesday, March 1.
SC Candid CS2 due Thursday, March 3.
Candid CS3 due Tuesday, March 8. 
For each picture you should emphasize a specific composition element other than rule of thirds.
If you need a refresher on composition elements they can be reviewed at:

These include, but are not limited to: frame within a frame, leading lines, color contrast, movement and meaning, multiple levels of meaning, leading the subject, and using light to highlight or enhance a certain section of your picture. Move the camera around. Shoot high and low angles.

For this assignment I want you to get as far away from Shorecrest as possible. Downtown Seattle, Capital Hill, Fremont, and the U District are all great places to shoot "random" people, but Lake Forest Park could be just as effective. Make sure you ask permission to take pictures (especially if you are taking pictures of kids).

Unintentional out-of-focus pictures will not be accepted. If you would like to try a some selective focus shots please tell me before you go out shooting and I can lend you a long lens.
