IF IT IS A VERTICAL SHOT, YOU MAY NEED TO PLUG IN THE WIDTH MEASUREMENT. IF IT IS THE BACK SHOT AND IT IS A VERTICAL SHOT, THEN YOU SHOULD PLUG IN THE WIDER MEASUREMENT FOR WIDTH.
Put your appropriate measurements needed for width.
IMPORTANT! The darkroom will be closed for the rest of the year on May 17th! Students need to be sure to complete any late darkroom work by that date! (Because of yearbook distribution, we will be needing to use the darkroom space to organize/store the yearbooks. That is why it will be closed for the remainder of the year.)
Sabattier due 5/17 (darkroom project, using old negatives from previous projects)
Color Splash Digital ASSIGNMENT:
Use your own photo, shot at school on your iPhone is fine.
Need to turn in the original image and the splash of color image, stapled together with your name.
No grade sheet. Due Thursday, 4/25.
Digital Infrared Link, from assignment due 2/26
Digital ASSIGNMENT: Flip Book Traditional & “Contemporary” 60 to 100 exposures due Friday 3/8
OBJECTIVE: To make a series of images that when put on consecutive cards, will become animated when flipped.
DIRECTIONS: The simplest way would be to keep your camera in one position (either on a tripod, or propped up on something—bean bags are good for this.) Have the subject go horizontally across frame of view. Usually when subjects go toward the camera it doesn’t always turn out successfully.
Images will be printed out in a specific Proof Sheet format, so you’ll be able to cut them out and clamp together.
You will need a COVER CARD INDICATING YOUR NAME AND TITLE OF YOUR FLIP BOOK MOVIE.
Images will be imported into iMovie for Quicktime presentation.
REQUIREMENTS: All points addressed on grade sheet. Composition elements, focus, full tonal range, and technical capabilities will be looked at closely. I will also be grading on how nicely the books are put together as well as the creativity of the subject matter. Turned in with proof sheet and grade sheet.
WATCH OUT FOR: • Contact Sheet images should be cut-out carefully, clean, straight cuts
• The size of each flipbook card should be 2”x4” with image on right side.
CRITIQUE: Both Quicktime AND flipbook are due March 8th. (Due at the beginning of class)
ASSIGNMENT 3: WEAVED PHOTOGRAPHS, 50pts due Friday, 3/22
DIRECTIONS: • Print the same negative or digital image 2 times so you have 2 identical prints.
• Be sure to print without a white border. They should be as close to one another in contrast, size and exposure density as possible.
• Measure and mark (in pencil) on the back of 1 print vertical strips 1/2 inch apart, label each column by letter or # to help with later confusion.
• Measure and mark (in pencil) on the back of 1 print horizontal strips 1/2 inch apart, label each column by letter or # to help with later confusion.
• Next, cut both prints into 1/2” wide strips USING THE ROTATRIM
• Regroup the strips next to each other face-up to make 1 image
• Place a strip of tape to 8” width side of the image. Be sure the strips are side by side with no gaps. (The first and last of the row will not be side by side)
• Be sure the tape is straight and not taking up more than 1/2” of the image
• Place a second strip of tape to the opposite 8” width side of the image again being sure to not take up more that 1/2” of the image.
• Then layout the other prints strips face-up making up the second image
• Set aside the 1st strip of the image strips that will be weaved through. (DO NOT THROW AWAY UNTIL FINISHED)
• Weave through the taped together pieces; remember to alternate so that it looks like a weave.
• As you weave through you will notice that the strips will get farther apart, on the backside of you print, push the strips up close to each other and use a small piece of tape to anchor them close.
• When completely finished tape all 4 sides on the backside of the print and turn-in!
Helpful Hints: • Choose a negative like a face or animal. Cars and planes work well, as do people in action - running, etc. Keep the subject simple. A cluttered image with a lot of confusing elements will not give you the best results.
• The easiest way to make identical prints is to do them at the same time. If printing in the darkroom: BE SURE THAT YOUR PAPER EASEL DOES NOT MOVE. Expose 2 sheets of paper (after you have determined the proper exposure) and process them on the same day to make sure they are equally developed. The more care you put into the craftsmanship of this assignment, the more satisfied you would be with the results.
• Remember agitation continuously through processing will give you best results.
• Your cuts must be exactly straight or you will have gaps and overlaps between the strips. • USE THE ROTATRIM, DO NOT USE SCISSORS!!
WATCH OUT FOR: • I will be looking closely at the construction of these images, it is important that the strips are cut straight and next to each other with no gaps.
• You may want to print a 3rd print just in case of a mistake
