Use the knowledge you have gained with past photographic projects to create a portfolio of photos on a specific theme (10 or more photos).  Save them in a folder in your CommTech folder on your Z:/drive.  Then, post them to your blog.

Choose a theme like:

FRIENDS – Photos of classmates and friends working, sitting, reading etc.

PORTRAITS – Posed or Natural (spontaneous) close up portraits of different people (neck up), use natural or artificial light, try to use different angles, B & W or colour. Be sure to ask people permission to take their picture.

The Natural World – Photos of nature around DHS

The Developed World – Photos of buildings, architecture, man made objects

THE SCHOOL – photos of DHS from various places, inside and out, remember to use composition, angles, framing to create interesting photos.

ARTWORK – Photos of different pieces of art found in and around the school.

ONE ITEM – Pick one item and take different pictures of that same item using various angles, shutter speeds, lighting or positioning.

Or a theme that you would like to use, please check with instructor on your choice.
