Brief

Create a series of 5 digital images using Photoshop. Choose a subject; create a series of related images that explore this subject.

We will have readings, discussions, and lectures to aid you in your approach to your subject.

Use images from sources including photos (digital or film), books, magazines, newspapers, and other print to be input via scanner. You can also scan in ojects. If you use appropriated imagery - use images from sources that can be scanned.


Objectives

To develop technical skills including Photoshop, and digital imaging with photography and scanner input. To gain experience with output to high quality prints from digital images in Photoshop. To develop conceptual skills and use understanding of related theory to create artworks.


Methodology

Research to select a subject, find other artists work in this area that you find interesting. We will go over a method of brainstorming to find a subject.

Use photography to create a minimum of 24 images using a film or digital camera. If you use a film camera, have the film developed and print your images or have them put on a Photo CD. If you print the images - bring the prints to class and scan them in.

Find source material that will be brought into the computer via the scanner - this includes print material and other objects which can be scanned.

Work in Photoshop to create your images.

Finalize your images for presentation on Wednesday January 30.

From the critique for this project - you will select 2 of the 5 images for output to high quality prints. The selected images can be reworked before printing. Projects
