•This assignment is all about dramatic shadow & light.
•Have some fun with this, make creative, inventive, interpretive photos that display your skills!
•Plan you shoot(s) for very early morning or late in the afternoon, just before the sun sets -that's when shadows are pronounced.
•When you are out and about, scout locations ahead of time, look for places to shoot when shadows are their most dramatic.
•Remember to fill the frame with your subjects…. get closer.
•Use interesting compositions and perspectives in your images. Vary your stance, up high, down low, close, wide, try for variety.
AFTER YOU'VE SHOT YOUR IMAGES:
•Pick your two favorites, edit your images & use Photoshop to crop them, straighten the horizon, lighten or darken and convert them to Black and White.
•Submit your two favorites in the "Shadow and Light" folder in the Advanced Period 1 Google Classroom folder.
