Student creates a series of color images using one of the following techniques.. Please talk with me when you are ready to get a description of the materials I have at school to create these dynamic images.
What might draw us to (or repel us from) a particular photograph?
How do photographs affect us emotionally?
How does it feel to be moved by an image?
How might we listen to photographs? What can we hope to hear?
How might we differentiate a quiet from a noisy (not low resolution) image?
Check out the Google Slides below and write some of your responses to the photographs.
Create a plan for a photo shoot including materials list, lighting, composition ideas.
Reflect on the experience after you have turned in your photos. What did you learn? What would you do differently next time?
Create a series of photographic images exploring your chosen sense.. Photo 3 does 5 photos for this series, you can do 5 or more.
Think carefully about how both the subjects of your pictures and the ways in which they are presented to the viewer can contribute to stimulating the appropriate sensory response.
You will share your work with the class (or small group of peers) You are asked to include a sense with your presentation/photo viewing experience:
*bring a food you would like the class to eat while we see your photos

Read through the list of street photography ideas. Pick three ideas you may want to try. Write them down an describe what you will need to create the series.
Time of Day:
Choose one of the three from you short list, and create a series of 10 images. Reflect on your experience afterwards, using your photo journal. What was difficult? What did you learn? Which shot is your most successful? Why?
Photograph an event:
Your series of 10 photos should help to tell the story of the event. Don't forget to photograph the unseen, under noticed moments. Have your camera ready to collect every little thing. The brush of the hair, the way the light hits someone's shoulder, the hand holding, the mother wiping her daughter's cheek, etc...This type of photography is an honor to create. Telling a story with images is loving kindness.
Journal Entry- create a list of potential events to capture. Make a list of the people you may need to talk to to make sure you are able to record the event with images. Reflect on the experience in your journal when the series is complete.
