Just as a composer uses all the instruments in a symphony to create a stirring piece of music, you should compose each picture so that it’s parts work together to create a work of beauty. Each item in a picture has an effect on the whole, so don’t just point and shoot. Take a little time to compose each picture into the masterpiece. Remember that you are trying to develop mastery in concept composition as well as in technique.

Photo keys:

Shooting vertical or horizontal

Choosing a main point of interest

Adjusting your angle of view

Placing the subject off-center

Using leading lines

Avoiding distracting backgrounds

Including foreground objects

Using rule of thirds

Color matters possible theme

2. Breadth Section III… Click Here Students Example arrow

. Works by former students Stephani Tansi. Click here arrow

The student’s work in this section should demonstrate understanding of the principles of design, including unity/variety, balance, emphasis, contrast, rhythm, repetition, proportion/scale and figure/ground relationship. Successful works of art require the integration of the elements and principles of design; students must therefore be actively engaged with these concepts while thoughtfully composing their art. The work in this section should show evidence of conceptual, perceptual, and expressive development, as well as technical skill.

Examples: 

• Work that employs line, plane, mass, volume or motion to activate form in space

• Work that suggests rhythm through modular structure

• Work that uses light or shadow to determine form, with particular attention to

surface and interior space

• Work that demonstrates an understanding of symmetry and asymmetry

• Assemblage or constructed work that transforms materials or object identity

through the manipulation of proportion/scale

• Work in which the color and texture unify or balance the overall form of the piece

• Work that explores the transition from organic to mechanical form

Student Objective: Study close-ups and perspectives and pay particular attention to how much is in focus and out of focus in each example. The emphasis or subject of your composition should be in focus, NOT blurred. Photograph the following in color (you can convert to B&W later) –BE CREATIVE

Mixed Media 3 Color design portrait” that integrate your five photos, Black and White Ink drawing that demonstrate organic lines and geometric shapes/forms, symmetry/balance, patterns, scanned elements and contrast. Size must be 8.5×11 inches 300 dpi.

Homework Due at the end of the week: Write (type) a one page research paper on an artist that incorporates portrait photos , shapes and mixed media.

Example: Portfolio: Iain Macarthur
Iain Macarthur is a tea addict who enjoys creating intricate images that are either cartoon drawings or realistic portraits. All his works have a unique touch of decorative elements added to them.

What are your favorite tools? I enjoy using the pen a lot in my art, as it feels more comfortable to use compared to using a pencil. I also like the feel of shading with a pen, although I sometimes do like to switch to a pencil.

What techniques and approaches do you use most? I like having a lot of patterns in my pencil-drawn portraits, which I guess you could say is my favourite technique, and incorporate it into parts of the piece, so it looks like it’s trying to break out of the portrait in an organic way. I really like using this effect, as it makes the image more unusual to look at.

What kinds of craft materials/tech do you work with? Photoshop CS5

Standards: Demonstrate understanding of the photo manipulation, principles design and elements of art.

*Photo Enhancement through the use of photoShop
*Create a variety of photos that shows an understanding of visual balance.
*Create a Drawing base on your photograph portrait.
