ASSIGNMENT: THE TECHNICAL
An Adobe Express Web Page URL or an Adobe Portfolio Gallery URL, through Canvas.
•Presentation must contain a minimum of 20 images. You can have one image that you feel best represents the prompt as a large image. If you have additional images you think represent the concept add a galley of the additional images.
•All images must have been made this semester.
•You may shoot new images or pull images from the previous assignments completed this semester.
•All images must be properly exposed and properly focused.
Text: In the Express page or Adobe Gallery include the information requested below.
•All images must be titled with the number and prompt found below in order.
-Include ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Camera or Devices, Focal Length, Date image was made.
•Tell me why the image meets the requirements. Tell me anything else you would like me to know about the image.
•Include your email and social media in the presentation or website.
How to find your metadata in LRM:
With an image selected. If you click edit, top left, a drop down appears, you can choose info to find the ISO and other metadata about your image.
The Presentation must be in the order of prompts below.
1) o Great Depth of Field. What aperture was your image made at? What was your focal length. How do these two things affect depth of field in your image? Were you using a DSLR/Mirrorless camera or a mobile device? How did you control the depth of field.
2) o Shallow Depth of Field.
3) o Stopped Action.
4) o Movement in the image that is aesthetically pleasing.
5) o Panned Action.
6) o High ISO image. ISO above 3200.
-Does noise become a factor?
7) o Leading Lines, adding content to the image. Define the content of the image.
8) o Rule of Thirds.
-Describe how you used the Rule of Thirds.
9) o Bugs Eye View or Birds Eye View: Tell me which concept your image represents.
10) o Symmetry within the image adding content.
11) o Texture, adding content to the image. Define the content of the image.
12) o Pattern, adding content to the image. Define the content of the image.
13) o Reflections, adding content to the image.
14) o Shadows, adding content to the image. Shadow should be the subject.
15) o Low light image, properly exposed and in focus. How did you steady the camera?
16) o An image cropped square.
-Why does this image work as a square vs the original aspect ratio?
17) o A backlit image or silhouette.
- A Silhouette is a photograph of an object filled in with a solid usually black color. Tell me which your image represents.
18) o Close-up, in focus. MACRO - Producing photographs of small items/subject equal to or larger than life size. Get in Close!
19) o An image with a dominant foreground subject, and great depth of field.
20) o A black and white image.
-Why did you choose to make this image B&W?
21) A warm-toned image, appropriate to the content.
22) Sepia Images.
23) Cool Toned Image.
24) Dramatic Atmospheric Light.
25) Image with a Dominant Color.
26) Triangular Composition.
Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO, Focus.
Use of composition in the image.
- To demonstrate basic technical concepts of the camera. DSLR, Mirrorless or mobile device.
- To demonstrate basic compositional rules.
- To demonstrate basic computer and editing skills.
You will find all of the above and more in the material from the semester. These are some definitions to get you started exploring this project. Be sure to add your own thoughts and definitions below.
5) Panned Action:
Your subject should be in focus and the background blurred.
To do this, choose a slow shutter speed (you still need a good exposure, be sure to adjust your aperture for the scene). You then follow your subject left to right - right to left depending, moving the camera with the subject, trying to match their movement speed, cliiiiiiiiiick. The goal is the subject is in focus and the background is blurred from your camera movement.
19) Dominant Foreground Subject:
You want a prominent subject up front filling the space with a middle and a background supporting the image content. This is different from a close up/macro shot where the viewers eye stays on the subject. With this concept we start with the subject then the viewers eye travels through the frame and back to the subject.
4) Movement in the Image that is Aesthetically Pleasing:
Movement that is aesthetically pleasing would be blur in the image that lets us see the subject and works well compositionally adding to the content. I am looking for lots of movement in the image with this one. Be sure to look at my samples to help define the concept.
A silhouette is created when a light source is placed behind the subject, with little to no light in front of your subject. Your subject is a dark/black shape in the frame. A silhouette is NOT a shadow.
10) Symmetrical Composition:
In a symmetrical composition, the two halves of the image are mirror images of each other. Such a composition automatically creates a sense of harmony and aesthetic balance.
Pattern is a repetition of elements in a photograph. Look for strong graphic elements that repeat themselves, lines, geometric shapes, forms and colors. Pattern can be precise or loose and organic.
1) Great Depth of Field:
With great depth of field you want everything within the frame in focus. From the foreground, to the middle and all the way to the background.
Be sure to add additional definition found in the material from the semester.
