Essential Question: How many images should I shoot to get quality results? _______
Often photographing beautiful or exciting subjects becomes more important than the way in which they are photographed. The photographer can become so interested in the beauty of the subject that she or he forgets about the beauty of the photograph. In this assignment, decide on several subjects that would be particularly dull, boring or unnoticed. Perhaps something in your backpack or pocket.Then go out a photograph it in an out of the ordinary way…by getting super-close.
Consider different ways in which you could present the subject. Are there different angles you could use? Could the lighting be manipulated, or are different times of the day better than others? Could anything be added to the situation to make it more interesting?
Most of all think about what you will photograph before you take any pictures. This is Concept Photograph and should be well thought out. Ask your self do I want to show the whole object. Could the photograph be more interesting if I only show a part of the object.
Photographs may be taken inside or outside using a Digital camera
