33. Comments – Due Monday before class is over
Comment on your favorite four photos from the photo 1 conceptual self portraits photos or advanced forced perspective photos. Please go through different student’s work to view more than four. Your comments need to include the photography and art language that we have talked about so far. This is not a one word or one sentence comment. Take your time and think about the other person’s work, what spoke to you, what did you like, what could be included to make the photo more dynamic, etc. Make sure that your comments are thought provoking and helpful. Type out your comments on four of your favorite photos on the blog. Then in Microsoft Word, copy each of your comments and the photo that you commented on, include the photographers name, and upload your word document to your blog as “Comments 9.”

5. Self portrait. Where are you in your life? How is the you of today different than the person you were a decade ago? A year ago? yesterday? We’re always changing, so take some time to show us this particular chapter of your life.
6. Create a different world. Be inspired by a book, a movie, a place, or a period in time. Choose a familiar narrative to use as a starting point, then re-interpret it to tell a story that is all your own.
7. A picture is worth 1,000 words. But can you describe just one word with a picture? Choose a word then create a photo that matches it.
8. What are you thankful for? But don’t get too cozy. To be truly thankful, you require the proper perspective. For this photograph, play with different perspectives. As you capture those items for which you’re most grateful can you do so with unique angles? How high or low can you shoot? What sort of framing can you play with? Could you add reflections? Play around and get creative.
