It’s a 3-day weekend for us as Piedmont, which is affiliated with the Christian Congregationalist Church, celebrates Easter weekend.
Whether you celebrate or not, capture an element of your 3-day weekend in 3 photos. At least two of the photos should have people, and at least one should include action. Include a cutline for each photo.
You should use your phone for this assignment.
Assignment: Utilizing Photoshop, edit 6 of the 10 photos (four action, one profile) in the Photoshop Exercise section of Canvas.
- Crop out unnecessary distractions. In three of the action photos, you must maintain the original ratio.
- Place your subject on the rule of thirds
- Adjust the levels and curves
- Make one photo grayscale
- Create a cutout from one of the profile photos
- Save your photos as .jpgs (profile as .png) and post on the blog.
- This is an individual exercise. During Friday’s class period, I will be in the lab for assistance. You must use Photoshop for this exercise. We will have a regular class Monday.
- Post your final six photos on the class blog by Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 9 p.m.
- Be ready to discuss your editing in class.
- Utilize the “Editing Photos” handout distributed in class (and available on Canvas)
Who doesn’t love a 3-day weekend?
Whatever your doing this weekend — whether it’s hanging around campus, heading to an athletic event, going home to see family, participating in MLK Day activities — capture some highlights that explain an aspect of your weekend in 4-5 photos! Here are the guidelines:
- Include at least two medium shots showcasing action, drama, expression and/or unusualness
- Include at least one long shot that sets the environment for what you are shooting
- Include at least one close-up shot that displays detail
If you need a refresher on the different types of shots, check out the PPT on Canvas.
Post your photos on the blog and be sure to include a caption with each photo. Your post should be completed by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17.
Have a great weekend and see you Wednesday at noon.
