Yearbook Agenda



email subject: First Last Yearbook! 

Quarter 2 Project.  If you have a video, email it to me! 

follow "us".  eriehighpulse on instagram and twitter. 















So by now you should be able to:  remove a tear, fix an over exposed photo, and under exposed photo, and adjust color curves.  Wow look at you.  You're so fancy. 

Next, more common photoshop approaches that are a little complex include: Removing object and replacing background, and, removing blemishes, stains, exct.  They are kind of similar, kind of different.  And, as with most everything photo shop... there are multiple pathways.  

IF: you need basic photoshop tutorials such as layers, management, toolbar, ext... see KAMI!  

Then, everyone needs to make CJ run alone, on a snowy day, in front of all the fans! 



Then: replace the girl on the green background with the girl hugging the wall.....

End of Year Project Proposal. 

Your proposal needs: A project, rationale for why that project, group members, rational for who those group members will be, and 6-10 must have expectations of your project.

Film Options: 


Action Sports - Capture your extreme adventures. 5 minutes or less.

Documentary - Documentary films under 15 minutes.

Jostens Project Yearbook -  Jostens invites filmmakers to tell a story using their yearbook as a central theme or element. Your yearbook is more than just a collection of class portraits and clubs on printed pages; it's a time capsule for your school year, a messenger of moments, archiving your stories, your school's stories and the stories of your classmates. Project yearbook invites you to bring those pages to life. Make it 8 minutes or less. Any genre goes. 

Others?  I am sure that you are more creative than me.  Prove it!  With a pitch and proposal.

Need a challenge and have no ability to work on page... work here with a partner. HERE

Welcome to 2nd semester.  

Starting task: You need to first look through the following photos http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/03/world/gallery/year-in-pictures-2015/
Then, you need to write in an e-mail to me the following three things: 
1) What was the best photo of the year, and what did the photographer do to make that happen.  Explain why it is captivating. 
2) Write what the best thing you contributed to YB was last semester- explain in detail with page numbers. 
3) What was the the weakest element you contributed to YB last semester.  explain in detail with page numbers. 

Mr. Fox's example: 

1) The best photo of the year from CNN's collection was photo #110.  The photo depicts a mother crying at her son's funeral as she is given flowers by a man with his back turned to the camera.  The photographer clearly worked hard to get into the right position for the shot.  The angle of the shot allows for much of the dead space to be filled with the nameless and faceless soldier, while naturally leading the viewers' eye to the face of the mother.  The picture could not have been taken at a better moment... in the moment before she looks down to accept the flowers, the photographer captured a moment of total loss and pain.  The photographer captured tears in her eyes literally about to spill over, but the photo packs more punch because at this very moment, the woman has maintained her composure despite the obvious pain.  There is a slight low to high angle, and the picture is neither a strait-on or a profile picture, but has an interesting sideways angle to compliment the slight low to high.  
2) The best thing that I contributed to yearbook as assembling a great staff.  I know that YB is a student publication and the staff did a mostly good job of creating pages.  Jamie did an amazing job, and worked too hard making this yearbook amazing.  There is also lots of creative talent in the room, both photography-wise and photo-shop wise.  The Baby-Ads are going well, and the advertisement and information that I provided lead to a bigger than normal year of ads. 
3) The weakest thing that I did was not hold everyone accountable to early deadlines which left Jamie and others scrambling to pick up the slack left by people who did not finish, and did not finish because I allowed them to do so.  Changing these things will greatly improve the yearbook 2nd semester. 






























What makes a great classroom photo/ page?

Look up a photo that is amazing, set in an educational setting... 

With a partner... Go Duplicate it, or, make it  better!

Then, write a story that aligns with that picture about OUR students. 

Turn in: original picture, your picture, and your story by end of class. 

Love, Mr. Fox

OK! Back to camera basics!

Before we talk about composition of a photo, let's first assume that composition equal parts to the exposure or a photo. 

First, let's work with this simulator: http://www.canonoutsideofauto.ca/play/

You and two partners need to find a picture and be a copy-cat...  Find something that would work in our school, and copy that photo. 
 
 Look at these first
 
 
 
 
 
First a look at the three elements of getting the correct exposure: Here's my favorate analogy.  Fill That Bucket!
My favorite analogy for exposure is filling a bucket with water. A bucket is of fixed size and needs a certain amount of water to fill it, just like film or a digital sensor needs a certain amount of light to optimally capture an image.  
To fill your bucket, you can pour a small stream of water for a long time or a fast stream of water for a short time. Either way, you end up with the same amount of water. In photography, the size of the stream of the water is analogous to the f/stop, the length of time you pour is analogous to the shutter speed, and the size of the bucket is analogous to the ISO.
Broadly speaking, from the bucket's point of view, it doesn't matter which combination of stream size and length of time you choose as long as the right amount of water ends up coming in. Film is the same; within limits, it is indifferent to the combination of time and amount of light as long as the right amount of light eventually arrives.
 
8/21- Depth of feild.  Read both articles.  This one first http://www.exposureguide.com/focusing-basics.htm  You will need to know this, so read this!  make sure you look at the examples!
