Most of what's included in the above link applies to you, except that for the headshots assignment, you'll be including your 2 best shots from each model, so your final image count will be 3 from each of the other 5 assignments (15) + 14 from your headshot portfolio, for a total of 29, before extra credit. Since most of you shot several extra credit outside assignments for me, you can include up to (20) additional images for extra credit (for a total of 49 images). These can be coverage of events for me, or personal projects you shot over the course of the semester.
You'll still be making a folder with the JPEGS and a PDF slideshow, it's just that your numbers and and where you pull them from will be a little bit different.
And finally, the exam.
Your exam grade comes from your total number of completed assignments. 6 completed assignments = 100, 5 completed assignments = 83.33, 4 completed assignments = 66.68, etc. Remember that you automatically get credit for one completed assignment because we shot the food shots for the cafeteria together.
The total number of completed assignments includes completing your portfolio, both the PDF slideshow and turning in the folder with the images and the slideshow on the network drive.
First off, your headshot collection is due at the end of the week (11/13). Secondly, I know a lot of you are having trouble deciding on which images to include in your final delivery. Here are a couple of discussions on how to weed out your good photos until you're only left with your great photos.
Take a look at this video; this is pretty much how you'll need to do your healthful food ad model shoots. In the video, the host talks about balancing flash and ambient light, and specifically how to create drama in your photos by choosing to underexpose your ambient light while correctly lighting your subject with your key light (in our case, it'll be a speedlight with an umbrella).
We're about to get started working on the healthy food ads I mentioned a couple weeks ago, so I wanted to give you some resources to go over before we get to our in-class demo. For most of our shots, we'll be using a single light with several bounce cards on a white background, so pay special attention to the parts of the articles that mention that type of setup.
