Good morning. Today we are going to continue on in our exploration of exposure. Yesterday you read about the Exposure Pyramid and ISO. Today we are going to dive deeper into aperture and shutter. Once you're done reading, I have a simple question that I would like you to answer on Schoology to earn credit for the day. Don't forget that tomorrow is Friday so your Positivity photos are due tomorrow. Other than turning them in I'm giving you Friday off! No new lessons, I'm not even assigning a new photo project at this time. I have been hammering you with reading so I'm going to take it easy on you and give you off Friday! Get outside and enjoy the nice weather. We'll talk again Monday!
Hello everyone. I am giving you today to work on completing your Triptych. Just make sure that you turn it in on Schoology by the end of the day. I can't wait to see what you have come up with! Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous so I'm going to give you the day to get outside away from your Chromebooks and take some pictures. Of what you ask... I want you to use motion blur. This means using a slow shutter speed and something in motion. The photo shouldn't just be a blurry mess though! Something should be in focus. You could do this by panning, or by having a still subject while others are moving. It makes for some really cool pictures. Even if you just use cars driving by, you can make this work! That's it for today and tomorrow! Enjoy some well deserved weather and time away from the screen! Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here Monday!
Good afternoon class. Hope you're Thursday has been good. Yesterday I had you watch two videos on how advertisements had used the 6 Principles of Design. Not the most enthralling thing you've ever seen I'm sure, but it's going to be helpful for our next assignment. I would like you to find an ad. It could be from the newspaper, a magazine, or online. It will work best if it's a full page print ad though because there is more to talk about that way than if there is a small web ad that exists on the side of an article. As you look you your ad, try to find one that you think uses the P.O.D.'s pretty well. Once you have found that add, I would like you to do the same thing that I have done in both the Listerine and Chips Ahoy videos. Explain how they have used each principle and whether or not you think it is well used. There is no wrong answer as long as you explain why you think what you think. How will you do this? I like to use Screencast-o-matic. They have an app for Chromebooks that is dead simple to use. Here's a video the company made on using it. Ignore their method of install as you will have to go get the app like you would any Chromebook app. their method of installing There are other apps that you can use if you'd rather. Don't like the video option? That's cool. You can write it up instead. If it's video I expect it to take at least 2 minutes to explain everything (probably more though actually). If it's written I expect something at least 12 sentences in length. I'm fine either way! I'm giving you plenty of time to do this (partially so that you can take tomorrow off, get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather) as it's not due until the end of Monday. Let me know if you have any questions!
