5 Good – 5 Bad

1. Five Good and Bad:

Using http://flickr.com, find five pictures that absolutely blow your mind. Five pictures that you just can’t stop looking at. Then write a paragraph on why you like this image. Make sure that the reason why you like it isn’t just because of the subject matter, but has to do with the way the photo was taken. This is your chance to tell me your feelings towards photography. Talk about color, contrast, anything that you know already about photography.

YOU DO NOT need to paste the picture into your word document….just be sure to describe the photo

Then using the same website, find five pictures, that really don’t work. Maybe its the fact that they are blurry, maybe its too dark, or too bright, or they’ve chopped someone’s head off. Find five pictures that could have been great but aren’t, then talk about how they could be better, one paragraph per image.
