Your World (Editing Days Friday 9/17 and 9/20 *Have your images ready to edit) Final Project Due 9/21

YOUR WORLD
ASSIGNMENT INFORMATION

Capture photographs of your world in only 5 PHOTOS 
Consider…
What do you do on a daily basis?
How can you capture a sense of your day in just 5 photographs?
How can you create candid yet intentional photographs?
How can you put an artistic spin on a photograph of your daily life?
Have your photos ready by Friday to work on Editing!!! Images will be due edited Tuesday 9/21 for Critique!



TIPS TO GET STARTED:

Make a list of things you typically do in a normal day. 
As you go about your day, consider what captures your daily life and creates an interesting photograph.
Don’t be afraid to take multiple pictures or take time to wait for the perfect moment (ex: wait for everyone to clear the sidewalk for a less cluttered image).
HOW TO SUBMIT:

Submit all 5 images In Google Classroom using a slide show. 
Step 1: Create a presentation with Title Slide with Name of Project and Your Name
Step 2: Attach all images (1 Per a Slide)
Step 3: Explain your  methodology  1 Paragraph Slide
Art methodology refers to a studied and constantly reassessed, question shown in art or art series,  as opposed to a method merely applied (without thought)


So what I’m asking is for you to ..... explain your reasoning for how these 5 photos show Your World in a Day!


You are Done! Submit the Assignment!
