Mimicking the Masters: Shooting Day 1

I have graded all project proposals. If you received less than 100, you are missing one of the following parts: 10 photos taken by your photographer, answers to the questions in last class’s blog post, or the name of your photographer. You have until the end of the school day, Thursday, 4/21 to properly submit this blog post. After that, no credit will be issued.

Not sure how to mimic the style of your chosen photographer without copying it too closely? Here are some examples:

Original Photos by Vivian Maier:

Photos by Ms. Lawson:

Macro Photos by Imogen Cunningham:

Photos by SOTA Students:

Today we will:

  • Plan the types of photos we will shoot to mimic the style of our chosen photographer (ex. subject matter, shot type (close-up vs. long range shot), camera angle)
  • Take our first photos for this project
  • Create a new blog post with the following:
    • best photos from today
    • a reflection on how well your planned approach worked (ex. subject matter, shot type (close-up vs. long range shot), camera angle) and what you will do differently next class
