For this assignment shoot 72 images or more. We will look at 4-5 images on the computer. I would also like you to bring in some images of your chosen photographer so we have an idea of what you are emulating
Email me your artist before you start to shoot. firstname.lastname@example.org
I will have comments for you that will help you take better pictures.
Tell us about the work of the artist not about their life history. Why did you choose them? What is their process of making? What is their work about?
This assignment is to help understand the visual vocabulary of other artists. By looking at other photographers you will get a sense of how they construct their images. And help inform how you want to make images. How to create your own style.
You can choose an artist on the list provided or if there is a photographer you like that is not on the list let me know.
You can mimic their pictures literally or you can mimic their style or concept.
Think about the angle of the camera compared to the images you are emulating. Consider the subject matter of each photograph and how the photographer approached it compared to the way you shoot.
