THE ASSIGNMENT: Shoot a minimum of 40 photos from TWO CLASSROOMS (or academic activities) and submit a minimum of 4 images and a proofsheet for the CVHS Program Planning Guide. These will be candid images of students and/or teachers engaged in classroom activities at CVHS.  Your images will be used in the Program Planning Guide, a CVHS print and web-based publication of class descriptions and offerings, designed to assist students and parents with course selections for the coming academic year.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS:
 
•Your photos must be candid, not posed. DO NOT POSE EACH OTHER!

•It must be a different person in each image you submit.

•Solid composition and creativity are the keys to your success… incorporate a dominant subject, and clean backgrounds for your images…

•You must communicate with the teacher IN ADVANCE to arrange shoot days and times.

•Don’t limit your shooting.  Shoot many photos, then edit them, pick your 4 favorite photos, and put them in the Planning Guide folder.

WHY THIS ASSIGNMENT?
This assignment is great experience for making images for a "client." As a photographer, clients will frequently ask you to shoot for a specific format or concept. This shoot requires that you make creative images while thinking on your feet. It also requires that you communicate effectively with teachers and students to get what you need. It is a great way to build not only your photography skills, but your communicaiton skills as well.

Save your photos into the proper Google Classroom folder as:
p3adv_lastname_ppg1
p3adv_lastname_ppg2
p3adv_lastname_ppg3
p3adv_lastname_ppg4
p3adv_lastname_ppg5 (this will be your proofsheet)
