Summary

Create a final project proposal that is typed and in hard copy form.
Be prepared for a progress check-in.
Create and print 8 or more images that have a related theme and aesthetic.
Present work professionally (all work matted) with one of the works framed. We will cover formal presentation techniques in class.


Objectives

To further understand and create images that are cohesive both thematically and aesthetically.
To continue to develop your artistic style and your overall thematic approach in digital photography.


Methodology

IMAGES
In this assignment you will use the camera of your choice and any level of digital manipulation to create a series of images that together express an idea or theme and that have a consistent formal quality. In other words, the works read in content and aesthetics as if they belong together and each image strengthens an underlying idea.

You have a two choices for content:

1) Create works that are a continuation of a successful body of work from a prior assignment.
2) Start a new idea that you wish to expand on.

Hopefully, the work you do for this final will give you fodder to continue your artistic investigation after this semester is over.

Proposal
Write a proposal for your final project that will contain the following:
1) The idea or theme your work will address.
2) The formal approach you will take. For example, will you go for a blurry look? Will you manipulate your work?
3) What camera will you use?
4) How does your answer to #2 and #3 above support your content or ideas.
5) Optional: Will your printing or display be anything out of the ordinary?

THE PROPOSAL MUST BE TYPED AND TURNED IN AS A HARD COPY

Check-in
Be prepared for a formal check-in on Nov 28. Your progress will be reflected in your final project grade.
