I can recognize elements of art and use them in a photograph.
What Elements of Art did this student use in her photograph?

Using your visual journals create a new post called “Elements of Art” and answer the following questions:
How many elements of art are there?
Why do you think understanding the elements of art are important to understand?
What elements of art do you see in the photography you have produced in class so far?
What Elements of Art do you find most interesting? Why?
This week and next you will be focused on two things:
Completing the Elements of Art photo challenge
Completing History of Photography assignment
You will turn in a link to your visual journal showing your work and four final photographs for the elements assignment. Additionally, you will add the history template to your visual journal and reflections on three separate photographs from the Time web link.
I can successfully publish a research post about photographic composition at my visual journal using WordPress
I can (with my elbow partner) thoughtfully produce four composition techniques photographs using a DSLR camera.
Before checking out a camera with your elbow partner students will need to write a paragraph at your visual journal (blog) about four composition techniques. Your writing needs to be based on research and not copy pasting from the internet. Please find photographs online that show examples of your choice of composition elements and add them to your blog post.
Choose four of the following composition elements:
I can research and learn about (with my elbow partner) four of the composition techniques of my choice.
Before going out to make pictures you will need to write a paragraph at your visual journal about what the composition is and what type of subject might work. Please show a photographic example of each technique you select as part of your research.
Choose at least four of the following composition techniques:
Rule of Thirds
Frame within a Frame
Examples of Student work
Research each technique before choosing. A quick way of starting your research is to right click on the word or phrase to do a quick Google search. Once you and your elbow partner have found four composition techniques to work with begin making photographs showing your understanding of how to compose a photograph.
You will produce practice photographs and publish them to your visual journal (blog) by this Friday for critique work.
Please use Lightroom to import and export your pictures. Name your digital image files using your Lightroom preset so that the name of the file contains the composition element you are demonstrating:
For Example, if you were exploring depth, you would name the file:
If you were exploring leading lines, you would name the file:
To produce quality images, you will need to shoot more than four practice and four final images. Keep shooting until you come up with photographs you absolutely love!
Today you will add to your visual journal sequences of photographs showing your work and understanding of the exposure triangle. If you weren’t here on a day the class went out to shoot pictures, or need to re-shoot a sequence you may check out a camera. All students will take an Exposure Triangle Post-Assessment tomorrow.
A sequence looks something like this:
Shutter speed – Which shutter speed is best at stopping movement?
Aperture – Which aperture setting provides the most depth of field?
ISO – Which ISO has the least amount of image noise?
All links are due by the end of class today at the Google classroom assignment Exposure Triangle.
A place to share your creative voice through art and photography!
