Unit 2

​What to Expect:
Photo 11 is about using a camera to make art.  Through a large variety of assignments we explore different techniques to make photos more interesting and more artistic.  We also explore how to use photo editing software to enhance photos and create digital art.


1.  Tech Zone

​The Tech Zone Project introduces you to Aperture Control (A) and Shutter Speed (S) modes on your camera. You will use these two modes to develop creative photos and apply the Photoshop Workflow mentioned above.​

Typology is the collection of collections; it's studying the amazing spectrum of variation  based on a shared attribute. To get started, review the Typology Project Outline. For this Project, you will be using poster sizing. Use the Photoshop Workflow for Poster Tutorial to properly size your image. You may find the video tutorial Formatting For Posters helpful with this project.
The Historical Timeline
No one can call themselves a true photographer if they aren't familiar with those who came before them.  In the History of Photography Project, you will create a PowerPoint outlining the Top 20 Key Historical moments of photography.
Historical Photography
Time to demonstrate your knowledge of both photography and history. In the Historical Photo Recreation Project, you will try to recreate a famous photo. Read the project outline for details.
