Warm Up & Assignments 2-9-12

Posted by seanmorr on February 9, 2012

Hi everyone…sorry I’m not going to be in today.  I’m on emergency baby care today.  I will be back tomorrow.

FIRST – warmup – go to the following link

https://www.evernote.com/pub/seanmorr/warmups

-there are FOUR different sites there, look through all four

write about one photo in your journal

ASSIGNMENTS

AP Photo – we will vote tomorrow – sorry about that

SURREALISM – go here and look for inspiration…your next mini concentration will be to create THREE surrealist images

https://www.evernote.com/pub/seanmorr/surrealism

I will expect you to have ideas on Friday

Photo 2 – If you’re done with your line photo you can turn it in, but I won’t be due until Friday, so if you need help or advice, wait until tomorrow – sorry about that

Finish your ‘what makes a good photo’ assignment – turn it in as p#lastnamegoodphoto

NEW ASSIGNMENT – there is a video in the digital photo 2 pickup box named ###crossproc.mov – it is a video tutorial that shows you how to give your photos a cool vintage look in photoshop

What I want you to do is choose one of your own photos and then apply the photoshop tutorial to that image.  Go through the whole video.  It’s pretty straightforward, but if you have major issues I can help you tomorrow

IF for some reason you can’t find the tutorial in the pickup box, here is a direct link

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s10/sh/629cb2b6-2db2-47ca-b9ff-ce774d60213e/8ea584e85350ede5263bcaa65f27e128
