Re: [teacherartexchange] HS Digital photo curriculum.

Date: Sun Sep 05 2010 - 06:38:57 PDT


I am sorry this is so late. I am new to the list. I have been teachig
photo for a number of years. I was assigned to tale over the Middle school
7th and 8th grade art classes. I have not taught art for over 20 years and
that was high school. Things have been rocky but getting better.

Below is my complete curriculum, syllabus, scoring guidlines, etc. for
digital photo. I have assignment for PhotoShop, the internet, and the
camera. After I take the students through ALL of the camera controls and
how to use them , The first assignment is for the students to shoot a
picture each of the elements and principles. After that they get into the
action photo, composition and other standard assignments that have been
around since film days. After that I take the students into what i called
"Theme and Variation". This is a take off from baroque music. The
students shot a wide angle of a scene and then decide which art element or
principle they will focus on and take 10 close up shots of that element
in the scene. if you picked texture you would walk up to a tree and take a
picture of the bark, a brick wall to illustrate texture. I hope that is
somewhat clear. Let me know how deeply I have confused you .

Digital Photography
Class Syllabus
Mr. Chaput

Course:
  · Digital Photography
  · One semester, every other day class.
  · 5 credits

Description
This course trains the student how to take pictures with digital
photographic equipment in order to expand their thinking about creating
conceptual photographic images and how to use these images to impact their
world through the use of digital photography.

All student training for camera operation, image downloads, composition,
image communication, etc. will be given in context with assignments with
as much hands-on activities as possible.

Because of the complexity of digital photography, there will be a certain
amount of skills and knowledge the student has to understand and be able
to do before starting on assignments

Choose a partner for the semester and where you will set. Please sit
together. This will be your assigned seats in the classroom. All shooting
on campus will be in student teams. Each student team is composed of only
two students with one camera. You must stay WITH your partner while they
are shooting or working on the computer. Do not be on campus at any time
with anyone that is not a photo student from this class. ALL of your
images will be taken OUTSIDE expect for the final. You will have to learn
how to work with the digital camera on the days that are cold. If it is
snowing, raining, or very windy, we will make adjustments because you
cannot shoot outside in the rain, snow, or strong wind.

Class Structure
Digital Photography is divided into three parts, 1) Camera back ground,
the elements and principals of design and camera operation, 2) Software
operation, and 3) photo assignments. You may have short training videos
(3-7 minutes) at different times in the class

The guiding principals for being successful in Digital Photo class are:

     1 Make sure you understand the assignment and the camera settings
Go slowly and deliberately
Take time to think about each picture before you take it

Photoshop Activity Assignment 2
Photoshop Layers
     
Assignment Description
This assignment will introduce you to a very interesting feature of
Photoshop, layers. See the descriptions of what a layer is below. You are
going to create four different composite images. Each image will be a
combination of four different assignment photos you have taken this
semester. You can ONLY use assignment photos that you taken this semester.
Do not use other pictures or any internet images or objects. You can go
shoot additional photos for this assignment if you would like.

Layers Description
This description of layers is in the help section. To find it go to:
Help -- Photoshop help -- Contents -- Layers -- Layers basic

“Layers allow you to work on one element of an image without disturbing
the others. Think of layers as sheets of acetate stacked one on top of the
other. You can see through transparent areas of a layer to the layers
below. You can change the composition of an image by changing the order
and attributes of layers. In addition, special features such as adjustment
layers, fill layers, and layer styles, lets you create sophisticated
effects.”
You can also go to this help area to see what else you can do with layers.
The layers topic is very deep and wide ranging

Assignment
  1 Create four different composite images.
Each composite image has four sections pasted onto it in four or more
    layers from fouir of your photos.
You can create a paint layer that is in addition to the image selection
    layers

Assignment Procedures
  1 Start up Photoshop
Open up one of your assignment pictures you have taken this semester. Do
    not use any images/pictures/etc., from anyone else or from the
    internet
Open up three more assignment pictures in the same workspace by clicking
    on: file (select the photo) -- open -- select “Discard the Embedded
    color Profile(don’t color manage)” -- Ok
You should have 4 of your photos in the Photoshop workspace
Decide which photo will be the background and what will be the theme of
    the finished image.
Select an area from one of the Photos using:
The Magic Wand tool
      · Lasso tool
      · Polygonal Lasso tool
      · Magnetic Lasso tool
      · Square selection tool
      · Elliptical selection tool
      · Column or row selection tool
      · Crop tool
 (Over)
      · Slice tool

    will be created when you paste the selection of the background.
Follow this same procedure to cut and paste one selection area from each
    of the 4 photos
onto the background.
  9 You can lighten, darken, change the color, or change the transparency
    of each selection area.
You can create a paint layer for your image that si an additional layer.

Things to watch for
      · If you see a command to “Flatten the image” select no

Camera Operation

Digital Canon Rebel XTi description

The XTi is a single lens reflex (SLR) digital camera. When you look
through the viewfinder you see what the camera lens sees because it is a
SLR (Single Lens reflex) camera. The XTI handles a lot like a 35mm film
camera.

The LCD screen in the back of the camera shows exposure information and
previews of pictures already taken, The LCD shuts off when you put your
eye up to the viewfinder. The LCD screen does not show you what the camera
is looking at. This is the function of the viewfinder.

There are in excess of over a hundred different settings on the Canon
Digital Rebel XTi. These controls influence the type, size, style, color
etc., of the final photographic image that is captured.

The student needs to understand and be able to use all of these controls
in order to have maximum creative control of the camera image as it is
being captured.

The XTi camera manual is on each computer and there are also hard copies
in the classroom.

Assignment Overview and procedure

   1 Each team of two students will get one camera and two manuals.
We will go through the camera controls as a class in chapters1-4.
   2 Your team will fill out a worksheet as we go through the operations
     and controls.
Your team will be working with the camera to learn how to operate the
     controls found in the manual.

Photography Class Fee

My records show that ______________________ has not paid the required lab
fee of $30.00 for beginning Photography or $40.00 for Independent study
Photography. This is a mandatory fee that is necessary in order for your
student to pass Photography Class.
These fees are used to partially offset the costs associated with
operating the program. I need to receive this fee as soon as possible.
Please feel free to call me if you feel I have made a mistake or there is
another problem of any kind regarding this fee. This fee can be paid on
the EHS website or by sending a checek to school made out to EHS.
