You can use any two colors or symbols to represent 1 and 0. Use the document below as as reference when making your poster board. Also, make sure you don’t pick a word or phrase that is too long, keep it short and sweet. It can be one word (more than 5 letters long) or it could be a short phrase.

Photography

TERMS TO KNOW – Download this document and use either your book or google to give a definition of each term. I don’t want you to copy and paste, I want you to give a definition in YOUR OWN WORDS. THEN after you’ve given the definition you also will be required to detail why this term is important to digital photography for all the words with a * next to it.

Compose two different photographs both using hard shadows. In one photograph include both the shadow and the object creating the shadow. In the second photo keep only the shadow in the frame.

This week we will be discussing “why photography?”. I want every student to take time out and find a picture that means a lot to them. It can be a picture that you’ve taken yourself or maybe its a picture that someone else took. Once you have that picture I want each student to prepare an Essay (1 page NOT double spaced) detailing the importance of the picture. If there is a way to get the picture to me digitally either through email or a flash drive I would like to have it, that way I can display it as each student presents to the class.
