I can provide a helpful critique to my elbow partner’s Composition Elements photographs using a Google form.

I can successfully publish a research post about photographic composition at my visual journal using WordPress
I can (with my elbow partner) thoughtfully produce two composition element 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 two composition elements. 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.
I can research and learn about (with my elbow partner) two of the composition elements of my choice.
Before going out to make pictures you will need to write a paragraph in your own words about what the composition is and what type of subject matter might work in and around school. Please show an example of both elements on your blog.
Choose two of the following composition elements:
Rule of Thirds
Frame within a Frame
Research each element before choosing. You can right click on the word or phrase from the blog to begin your research. Once you and your elbow partner have found two composition elements to work on begin making photographs around school showing your understanding of composition.
You will produce two practice photographs and publish them to your visual journal (blog) by this Wednesday September 26 for critique. You will turn in a link to your visual journal to the Google classroom for credit.
Please export using Lightroom. 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 just two practice and two final images. Keep shooting until you come up with photographs you absolutely love! Additionally, you will turn in your final Hello Photography! image. Each photographer will need to produce their own image based on the visual idea list used to help describe Heritage High School.
I can export a digital image file using Lightroom export.
