And then there was the camera!
This Click assignment is a little different and more involved than the last ones.
We will be looking at other photographers as inspirations for our very own self portrait.
You will select from my list of example photographers and decide which one you would like to emulate in your own photography. The end result will be your own self portrait following the style or techniques of your master photographer.
-Select a photographer to use an inspiration for your own self-portrait. (You can find your own photographer but it must be approved by Mr. Borja)
-Plan out your photograph, how will you use your inspiration to make your own photograph.
-You can use an assistant to help you shoot this photograph. Remember you are the director!
-When you upload your photo, in the description respond to ONE of the following questions to comment about your self portrait:
1. How was your final piece influenced by your master photographer?
2. How did you come up with and develop the idea for your final artwork? Was your finished piece what you originally envisioned, or did it change from your first thoughts and sketches? Describe how your ideas evolved from start to finish in making your artwork and the characteristics from the master artwork (formal / conceptual ideas) that inspired your self-portrait.
-Objective / Concept: Did you creatively solve the problem as independent thinker? Image should be well thought out, planned and executed. Image should be personalized with a unique and meaningful response. Image is new and original (Avoid cliche and stereotypical responses)
-Design: How elegantly do you employ the photographic principles of composition or principles of design in your work?
-Camera Use: Did you use good lighting and is the exposure well focused?
-Presentation : Did you make simple edits in a photo program to adjust levels, crop or clean up the image? Did you upload it to flickr on time and respond to the prompt in the photo description?
