1.First part:In Word, write a 700- to- 900-word story that enhances your photographs. Also write captions for each photograph, so you need to get complete names of all the people who play a significant role in your photos.
(add more 200 words based on my draft)
2.Second part: In an essay of about one-two page, discuss your learning process and analyze your product.To help you develop this, we want you to write an analysis of your project. Identify its pluses and minuses. Use the concepts and vocabulary you learned in class
(Discuss its form. Form includes
a) the visual elements: dot, line, shape, form, texture, tonality, directional forces;
b) the principles of design: symmetrical and asymmetrical balance, emphasis, economy, repetition, proportion, unity and variety;
c) lighting: angle, direct and diffuse;
d) camera controls: freezing action, blurring motion, shallow or deep depth of field. Of course, not every concept applies to every photograph, but we want you to describe all the formal aspects you see in the picture you chose) to articulate your emotional, intellectual and aesthetic reactions to your own photos. Tell us about problems you encountered, ask questions, vent frustrations. Especially discuss your learning process. Tell us what risks you took, what you taught yourself, what you want to try the next time you photograph, how the experience felt. Tell us what you want us to know about your project that we won’t get by just looking it.Write clearly. Use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. Your self analysis should be between one and two pages.
