What are we doing?
- Learning about different types of color schemes
- Taking 3 photographs, one for each of the 3 color scheme
What do we have to turn in/participate in?
- Creative color wheel made in photoshop that shows the 3 primary colors, 3 secondary colors
- 3 photographs, each showing a different color scheme:
- Monochromatic (including many tints and shades)
- Photographs CANNOT be flat. They must show a depth of at least 3 to 5 feet. You will not get credit for photographs that do not do this.
- DO NOT just take a bunch of objects of certain colors and pile them together!!!!!!!!!! Remember, it has to be a good photo in the first place, and show the specific color schemes as well.
What should I make sure to do? What should I think about?
- Think about color and how it can enhance the mood or feelings in a photograph.
- Think about every single object in the frame. Are you sure you want it to be there?
- Think about what you are trying to say with the photograph. Is it just “pretty”, or are you trying to tell the view something?
- Think about the camera angle…is it boring? Does it help to say something about the subject?
- Think about where you point you camera to meter a scene. Is it a really dark place or a really light place? Try to meter in a neutral place, not too light or too dark. Make sure to meter every photograph properly for the correct exposure. MAKE SURE YOUR WHITE BALANCE IS SET CORRECTLY . Use a WHITE CARD if needed.
- Your photograph should reflect everything we have learned so far about:
- Physical choices
- Photo commandments (avoiding clutter, rule of thirds, etc)
- Composition (line, shape, texture)
- Shadows and light
- Depth of field and motion
- What you include in the frame
- PHOTOS MUST BE IN FOCUS!!!!
