> What a cool website is This is a movemen!. Last
> year I brought a similar lesson to the digital photography class
> with great results. Take at least 20 photos of line groupings. We
> study lines in structure and lines that create movement. Then
> students enhance the contrast and apply sharpening techniques to
> the images. They choose the best structural line image which has at
> least 9 but not more than 15 shapes edged by the structural lines.
> Using the polygonal lasso, the students select shapes one at a time
> and paste the movement line pictures into the shapes. Then they
> transform the lines into angles so they move the eye through and
> around the image. They can also apply adjustment layers to each of
> the photos to adjust lightness, and contrast. This is a value
> oriented lesson but can also be used when studying color. It could
> also relate to harmony and unity. Thanks for the great ideas.
