WELCOME BACK PHOTOS EXAMPLES

Advanced Photography Welcome Back Assembly Assignment


•Use your photography skills to document the Welcome Back Assembly. Shoot a variety of subjects, using your knowledge of the “elements of photography.”  (I know this is your chance to march onto the field as Seniors, and I want you to have fun, but shoot a bunch of interesting photos too. Go beyond shooting selfies, use your skills to create some amazing photos!)

•Shoot a minimum of 24 different photos before, during and after the assembly (6 photos of the same shot of your friend posing for the camera = 1photo). Look for look for candid, as well as posed photos, of students enjoying the Assembly.  

•Think in terms of shooting a mini documentary, with some shots at the beginning, middle and end of the rally. 
• What to shoot?  Putting on crowns, waiting to go into the stadium, friends carrying each other piggyback, cheering in the stands during the rally, then the crowd leaving the field etc... Look for spontaneous candid moments…

•Remember to fill the frame with your subjects…. get closer.  Use interesting compositions, light and moments in your images.  Vary your stance, up high, down low, close, wide…. try for variety…. and most important, photograph people’s faces.

WHAT TO DO AFTER THE SHOOT •STEP 1
•When you return, download your photos, look through your images using Photo Mechanic, & edit down to your 5 favorites.
•Show those 5 favorites to the other advanced students. Discuss with them what worked and what could be better. 
•Then pick 2 photos to submit for a grade.
•Put your two favorite photos on Photoshop backgrounds.

•When you submit your images, you will name your photos like this: 
P#lastname_welcome1
P#lastname_welcome2
P#lastname_welcome3 (this is your proof sheet)

WHAT TO DO AFTER THE SHOOT •STEP 2
•CROP YOUR 5 FAVORITE IMAGES & ADJUST THEIR IMAGE TONALITY.

•Then, create a new folder on your desktop
•Name the folder: p#lastname_WB_Edits
•Save your 5 favorites into that p#lstname_WB_edits folder.
•Put your Welcome_Back_Edit folder into the 206teacher server
•I will share your photos with Mr. Evans for possible use in the yearbook.
