What have you always wanted to learn in Photography? For this one week project you will research a Photography camera technique and learn how to create a number of photo examples using that technique. This can be done in partners (no more than 2 people). You will then give a 5 - 7min presentation to the class including your images, teaching us how to use your technique. You will be the teacher during the time of your presentation.
Use photography magazines, online tutorials (video or websites), etc... I will facilitate and direct you through this independent research project. If there is any equipment that needs to made you will be responsible for it, there are a number of DIY site out there that show you how to create what you want.
We will be focusing solely on "camera techniques" and not looking at theme exploration. Make a real attempt to choose something that is outside of the usual camera tricks we know. If you can complete this project in less than a day, you need to find a bigger challenge or you are selling yourself short.
Here are a number of ideas for camera techniques if you don't know what you want to do:
Panoramas, HDR, Silhouettes (spot metering), Bokeh, Star Trails, High Speed photography, Macro Reverse Lens, Levitation, Infared photography, Time Lapse (photos- video), Dramatic portrait lighting, Panning, DIY Flash Ring photography,
Your objective in this project is to become an expert in your chosen "camera technique" and then show the class what you learned.
