A Walk in Nature
We are so fortunate to be in a place that is surrounded by an abundance of nature. Take a walk this weekend; you might even consider taking a new hike and discover new things. Don't think too much when taking photos. Use your camera phone or the latest in digital cameras. You can add filters or whatever wonderful apps are out there.
Take pictures of nature
Experiment with different angles, capturing a variety of textures, form, perspectives and scale.
Edit your pictures. Which ones are the most visually dynamic and why? What images are you drawn to and why?
Print each of your most interesting images in color on 8.5 x 11.This can be done in the library on ordinary paper, don't print on photo paper or inkjet printers.
Printed photos will be presented at the beginning of class on Monday. No excuses, plann ahead aandsolve problems that might arise, ie. laser printer issues, paper issues, camera issues.
If you do not have access to a camera the department can provide one for the weekend. Ask me before class ends-- projects. http://www.urbanautica.com/
