- STAY IN CLASS. When the class is outside, remain within the limits announced.
- Bring a lock for an assigned locker.
- Keep your camera in the assigned locker at all times, unless you briefly take it home overnight or over a weekend to finish a roll. It MUST be available during the week so that the class can go outside together in order to work on assignments.
- Use class time to work on class-related tasks. ABSOLUTELY no internet use during class. Earbuds are fine, but only in the darkroom or while you are on the computer.
- If you have no work planned during class for your own assignments, extra credit becomes mandatory. In other words, you MUST use class time to work on photography-related assignments.
ABOUT PHOTO I ASSIGNMENTS
- Consider each assignment just a framework, like an empty shell. It is your job to fill every single assignment with life, to make it yours. Take pictures that have meaning for you, that say things you care about. In other words, be honest. Communicate something (ideas, feelings, questions).
- Shooting assignments are your homework in Photography. For those rolls you do at home, have each week’s shooting completed by Monday so that you can develop on Mondays and make full use of the lab time all week. If you know you will be busy a particular weekend, take a roll the week before. Plan ahead!
- An assigned roll consists of at least 20 frames related to the assignment. With the five or six “extra” shots in a roll of film, feel free to take pictures of your family, a boyfriend or girlfriend, whatever interests you.
- As in any other class, turning in work done by others is considered plagiarism. No “negative borrowing.”
- Assignments cannot be repeated — unless you want to do an assignment over for
- 1) a higher grade, or
- 2) extra credit
WHAT TO TURN IN EACH WEEK
TURN IN YOUR ROLL(S) EACH WEEK WITH SHEETS ARRANGED IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER, AND WITH THE MOST RECENT ASSIGNMENT ON TOP:
- The analysis sheet
- A contact sheet showing at least 20 exposures related to the assignment. (Circle what you print w/ a red sharpie)
- Two 5X7 prints (in the first quarter)
- Two 8X10 prints (in the second quarter)
Take a second roll for each assignment on weekends. It will raise your grade and will also serve as backup, in case the first roll doesn’t come out.
HOW TO TURN IN ASSIGNMENTS
- TURN IN 1-2 ROLLS OF FILM EACH WEEK
- DUE DATES ARE POSTED ON THE BOARD
- Always put the most recent assignment on top in your binder.
- Circle the images on the contact sheet that you have printed.
- To add contact sheets to the notebook, simply punch holes in one side.
- Never punch holes in a print. To turn in prints, make a tape tube and stick them on to sheets of paper.
- Do not put the analysis sheet in a page protector — so that I can write on it.
- Turn in notebooks on the table below the TV and pick them up in the file cabinet drawer for your period.
