ASSIGNMENT: LANDSCAPE/SEASCAPE/CITYSCAPE  
 

 
 OBJECTIVES:     
  To create a color and B&W version of a landscape, seascape, or cityscape and compare the merits of each.  
 PROCEDURES:     
 

I don't know if you could find a better place to do this assignment. We live in one of the prettiest places in Washington. Pick a subject(seascape, landscape, cityscape). Consider the light as you take your pictures. Light looks different at different times of the day. Do some research about the golden hour. After you identify the image that you like, make a color and B&W version of it. You need to put a dark vignette on both. It can be subtle, but it needs to be there.

To clarify: both images are of the same scene, one is black and white and one is color, they both have the same vignette on them. Make the black and white version in Photoshop.

 
 TURN IN:    
  2- 5 x 7 or 8 x 10 horizontal or verticle native resolution psd files. One color and one B&W. Name them, color.psd, and B&W.psd. Place jpg versions on your Weebly page.  
 EVALUATION:    
 

Your assignment will be graded using these criteria:

From Mr. P's Photo Rubric

Vision:
Is you image original, innovative and daring, or just another example of the same old thing? Does it fulfill the requirements for the assignment (see assignment requirements above) ?

Aesthetics:
Have you used the appropriate elements and principles of design that would enhance your photograph or did you just shoot what was in front of the camera? Have you used good composition or did you just place the center of interest in the center because it was easy?

Mechanics:
Camera Techniques: Is the image sharp/in focus? Is the exposure correct? Was the appropriate aperture/shutter speed used (if applicable for your camera), did you find the best angle?

Computer Techniques: Is the image sharp/in focus? Is it resized correctly? Is it color corrected and sharpened?

Presentation: Is the artwork presented in a professional manner as outlined in the assignment?

Good luck
