  • A: Looking at the images you gathered last time and before today…
    • What are two strengths about the best image you have and what are two weaknesses in the least successful image you have?
    • I want you to be thoughtful about the images you have created. Today we experiment and tweek in Photoshop with a strong photograph.
    • It is important to know that you can only do so much with a weak photograph – the better you can do before you press the shutter button the better your final image will be.
    • Planning and preparation are a good portion of it – luck CAN take an active role in the process – but planning is a better approach to the creation of the photograph.
  • G: What did you accomplish today in the time we had for photography? Strong images? How were you able to make the best use of your time? Thinking about the images you created today… how many of the Elements and Principles were you able to document? Able to capture in a unique and original way?
