Weeks 4 and 5

We are still in the process of getting back into the photo groove. The first few assignments are designed to get you shooting again and starting to control the camera. Overall, I like what I am seeing so far. The All About Color images were fantastic.

Assignments you should be working towards, include:

  1. DSLR and Exposure Basics - Starting on Thursday (9/26) you are going to be showing me you understand by demoing a few things for me on the D5000s. There is also a form for you to complete.
  2. HDR Toning - Use the Photoshop HDR toning feature. (Picasa / Blog)
  3. HDR Photographs - Take 3-5 images of a single subject and use Lightroom -> Photoshop feature to create a true HDR. (Picasa / Blog)
  4. Photographer as Artist - Read one of the provided articles and respond to it on your blog (Blog).

While I am giving you the option to complete these items in the order that you want, they are all required. As we move forward, if you are NOT completing my assignments, you will NOT have the option of doing your own thing.

You have to earn your freedom. I'm seeing mixed productivity and my expectation is that you give me 4-5 hours of work a week.
