Hi, students. This project is due Thursday, October 17, 2019. Using last week's triptych technique, create a three-photo panel that tells a story. You must use photos that you yourself have taken within the past two years. Use image>canvas size to add white space below the triptych. Under each of the photos, use text to tell your story. Create two three-photo stories or combine two panels (total of six photos) to tell a longer story. Make it interesting--something everyone will want to read and view!

Welcome, AP Photo Students!
Good morning, Bloodhounds. Pinhole photography is delayed until we can get our 15-foot high window recovered in the darkroom. Waiting on the return of our tall ladder that has disappeared. In the meantime, let’s forge ahead with the Elements of Art assignment. I will show exemplars during class, and you can click on the student art tab on my website to see samples from years past. Five photos—one each for line, shape, space, texture, and color— are due Tuesday, August 27, 2019 in your OneDrive account (AP Photo folder>Elements of Art).
Download the free Lightroom app on your cell phone to edit these photos. Make sure photos are straight, and crop out any distracting parts (noise). Use other features of Lightroom as you wish to create an interesting, attractive photo.
