Project Description

Create a set of 4 images that speak for themselves.

ASSIGNMENT

Create a set of 4 images after spending a day shooting around your city or neighborhood. This assignment will help you understand the importance of being committed, passionate, and dedicated-it will also get you thinking about your photography in a long term manner. The focus of your images should be about content and form, what’s actually going on in the image and is it complete in the frame. Images that speak for themselves have a universal language rooted in humanity, so think about action or scenes that may inform social awareness, and/or speak to life and it's ambiguity.  

DELIVERABLE

Upload 4 photographs that speak for themselves but also work together as a group. Give your photo set a title. What to consider about your images:

  • Content and form - think about what the image is about and all the information that’s included in the frame.
  • How does the photo make you feel and how does it inform the viewer? (intensity, spontaneity, sense of life, etc.)
  • Photograph what you like!
  • Don’t have preconceptions about how your images should look, be open to what can happen.
