You will shoot two contact sheets based around two quotes about the spring season. In other words, pick your quotes and shoot pictures for those quotes.
I will list a few websites where you can find some quotes about spring, or you can find your own.
  • First, pick your two quotes
  • You will have homework due in a week on March 17.
  • You will have an in-class shooting day on
Contact sheets are due at the end of each of these days.
Next Monday you will have class time to adjust these pictures.
Many spring quotes are directly about the seasons and nature. However, you will find many quotes that also deal with events or sports that take place during spring time like weddings, music festivals, baseball, and golf etc. You also may find quotes that talk about spring cleaning, BBQ's, family gatherings, Easter, and Mother's Day etc.
Spring Quotes
You may also use a quote from spring poems.
Don't forget, you can also try to find your own quotations as well.
