FINAL DIRECTION CONTRACT

Digital Photography, Fall 2003

Contract due Tuesday, October 28

Final Due by class time Tuesday, December 9th

Final critique Tuesday, December 9th and Thursday, December 11th

 

NOTES: 

  1. Come to class prepared to work on your final.  If you don’t bring your work to class, I will assume you have spare time and will find other work for you.
  2. You may use a traditional camera and scan negatives or prints OR any digital camera, but your must use a camera!  Creative applications of scanners count as cameras.

 

CONTRACT (DUE 10/28)

TYPE a contract that contains your goal for a final project.  The contract will cover the following four points:

 

1) Your concept or idea behind your work (this may naturally change, but keep me up to date).

2) Any formal considerations (For example, you may want to work with texture or color.)

3) Method of output and how many.  (For example, installation, prints (what kind?), light box, screen, etc.)

4) Technical considerations, if any (Some examples, frame or mat board, how big will your files be and how will you deal with that, or how will you build a light box) 

5) How many images (or boxes, or whatever) you plan to make.  You must argue to support your numbers.  An average number to shoot for is around 8-10 images.

 

This work should build on or be an extension of you midterm, but you may, if need be, start an entire new body of work.

 

JOURNAL        

Document the work in your journal.  Be sure to label the pages as ARTC 400 midterm.

Make sketches and notes about your ideas and take notes about your process.

 

TURN IN (9/9)

1) Digital copy of you images

 

Go to the folder -> Blinn-> HomeworkEber-> Midterm and make a folder with your last name.  In it, make a "Theme" folder and "lighting" folder.  Save appropriate images in each.

Images should be tif (.tif extension), flattened, no channels or wet layers, and not more than around 2 MB. 

 

ON THE FINAL DAY

We will view OBJECTS (not digital projections) unless you make specifications in your contract with reasons why you are choosing digital projection AND I OK it.  Slide projections or installations count as objects.

 

The Final will take two days, but all work is due on December 9th.  Everyone must attend both critiques, even if you already presented your work.  Absence from a midterm or final critique will lower your grade by one.
