Photo 2 Candid Photography


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 Thursday March 9th at Shorecrest.You will take candids of students and staff during this day. Some of these pictures could end up in the Yearbook.
The next contact sheet will be homework done at multiple locations of your choice due on Thursday, March 16th.
The next shooting day will Tuesday the 14th and you will shoot at multiple locations of your choice.

SC Candid  due Thursday March 9th.
Candid CS2 due Tuesday, March 14 th.
Candid CS3 (homework) due Thursday, March 14th. 
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.
