Photo 2- Continue on the tutorials. Friday the tuts and your own version will be due, end of the period. Next week we will be doing in class shoots, take a big break from the tutorials.
Photo 1- Work on self-portrait collage. Remember, start with 8X10 inch canvas (vertical) at 300 pixels per inch. This is all about layers and layer masks. Use them. Also, be sure to save as a PSD file (make sure FORMAT is Photoshop) when you save.
For today’s post- Take a look at this comic- HERE. Read it. Read it. Read it. So, what is money was no object? What would you attempt to do? What goals in life would you have, if money was no object? How would you make your mark on the world, or would you want to lay low and just do nothing? Why? What would you do if fear was not an option?

Photo 2- Keep chugging away on the second tut video, then when done with that work on your own version of it! Done on Thursday? If not, Friday.
Not too much longer until Spring Break!! Hang in there peeps!
Photo 1- Miss Wahl will review the layers, layer masks, as well as go over the lasso tools which will help you when doing layer masks. Be working on your self portrait collage.
Remember- 8 inches wide, 10 inches tall, 300 ppi, have at least 8 well done cutouts on it of things that make you who you are, represent you. Get creative, have fun with it! Think about balance in the overall project, as well as size of times, overlapping, and overall composition.
For today’s post- READ THIS. What mistakes have you made in this class and learned from? What mistakes in life have you made, or seen friends/family members make and you have learned from? Do you consider making mistakes an important part of growing? Why or why not?

Photo 2- Great tone back, being gone for three days is stressful. Trust me, I wold rather be here than away that long.
We’ll see where everyone is at for the tutorials, etc. You should have photos today based off the new tutorial video, and you should have the last project turned in/ready to turn in.
Photo 1- You should have photos taken of things that are important to you. At least 20 as usual, get them downloaded, will be coming around for a check on them (20 points- either you have them or you don’t). Then we will get into learning about layers, making a new canvas, etc. Lots of good stuff- TAKE NOTES while we are going through this. TAKE NOTES, it will help you later on. TAKE NOTES.
For today’s post- Take a look at THIS photo and read the short paragraph below it. This image is listed as one of the top 100 influential photos of the world. Why is this image so influential? What do you learn from the image? How are you inspired by it? What makes this image a strong image that people want to look at over and over? Be sure, as always, to write at least 3-4 sentences, proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, etc.

Photo 2- Hopefully you are done with the first project, the one that you are doing with your own images. Today, start watching the tutorial video for the second project. I know, you are ready for a break from these and I promise next week we will get to in class shoots, learn some new things with the camera, etc. Let’s get through one more (while I am gone) and then we will move one. Some good stuff can be learned from these, plus make you even better at photoshop.
Photo 2 WEEKEND ASSIGNMENT- Shoot photos to go with the second tutorial video, that you will do your own version of after getting through the tutorial.
PHOTO 1- Today Miss Wahl should go over your natural framing photos.
WEEKEND ASSIGNMENT- Photograph at least 8 different items that are important to you, have meaning to you, help to make you who you are. Do not take photos of photos, and do not use old photos. Make sure to photograph the WHOLE subject, not just parts of it. Trust me on this, make sure to photograph the whole item. As always, get at least 20 photos.
For today’s post-
I don’t think we have had this quote before…..
“No picture has a single meaning.” - Simon Watney

Photo 2- Keep being good! Today you should be finishing up your own project, then tomorrow getting going on the next tutorial. I don’t remember if I made a folder or not, if I did not, just save the finished project into your folder and we can get it turned in when I return. Keep working hard and making great stuff! You all are very creative and can do it!
Photo 1- If you are not done already, finish the Learning to Look. Remember to write in complete sentences, referring back to the photo. By the time you are done, someone should be able to read your answers and picture the photo in their mind! Be good, remember anyone mentioned for anything other than being great, you earn a week of lunch cleanup duty!
For today’s post- Is photoshop ruining photography? Read this post HERE. What is your response to this? Should the photo have been disqualified from a contest for too much editing? Do you think that photo is edited too much? Do you think you can trust/believe all the photos that you see? What is this doing to advertising? How will this alter history? Be good!!
