Freshman year of college I took the intro to digital photography class my major required. I got the impression from the teacher that I was way ahead of the rest of the class, since I already knew what aperture and shutter speed were when I started… I had some extra time so I thought I’d repost a couple of those sequences, since that was well before I started the blog.
One assignment was in-class, the teacher took all of us outside with croquet equipment as a situation for us to photograph. A lot of the students spent time on their hands and knees, shooting typical stuff of croquet balls through the wickets, or spent time posing mid-swing for their friends. I thought it was all pretty funny watching them standing in the middle of the brick quad, alternatively hamming it up or getting all art-student-photographery, and I ended up photographing the entire scene of goofing around, unlike most of the rest of the students.
Another project was to do a photo series of a location around town – our third and culminating project. I don’t remember more of the specifications than that, but I chose Mt. Hope Cemetery and went out early in the spring to photograph the graveyard.
I think maybe the requirement included specifications about total number of pictures and distance from the the subject (close, mid, distance) sort of thing.
