  • A: Photography – Let’s look at the ideas of what makes for a good photograph and how you can use this to create a strong body of work… Today we will be going out into the building to make photographs based on the ELEMENTS and PRINCIPLES. Your final project here will be a presentation of the portfolio of Element and Principle Photographs and a final series of images that demonstrate your understanding of a strong photograph. Begin by taking your camera – or my cameras – and go out into the building to make photographs based on the E’s and P’s.
  • 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?
