During the class of photography, the learning objectives are Students will express creative and artistic abilities through a variety of projects and Students will create images that are properly exposed in multiple lighting situations.This is valuable to my future because I will have knowledge about cameras and their different settings.The project that I am submitting as an artifact for photography had the following learning objectives Students will express creative and artistic abilities through a variety of projects and Students will create images that are properly exposed in multiple lighting situations. These link back to the course learning objectives by showing that I managed to achieve it.
The assignment or project was about hard and soft light. It also had to be in manual mode which is when you choose your f stop, aperture, shutter speed, iso and most importantly you have to focus it. This project also had to be portraits of people. It required me to be creative and get 10 pictures. 5 of hard light and 5 of soft light.The Process I went through to do this project and meet the learning objectives first started with learning about hard and soft light. Hard light created shadows on your face while soft light doesn't and it has a smoother surface. Then we had to take turns being photographers, models and the light person. We also used reflectors to even out the light to the subject or create shadows which were really cool.Throughout this process listed above I have realized I have learned or grown in the following ways by getting better at taking pictures, learning to express our creativity, and take pictures that have different lighting. These link back to the course goals and project goals with the following evidence of light, creativity and expression.This tells me the following about myself and how I learn that with inspiration I can express myself in a different way.
The Two School Wide Learning Outcomes I demonstrated with this Artifact are Self Directed learner who communicates effectively and Thinking critically and creatively,I have demonstrated Self Directed learner who communicates effectively in the artifact. I demonstrated this SLO not through words but in my pictures. I made my models pose as happy or sad depending on my mood. This is important because it shows that I am able to express my feelings in more than 1 way.The Second SLO I demonstrated was Thinking critically and creatively. I demonstrated this SLO in my pictures. I made some of my pictures have perspective.in them or have really nice light which I think is cool. This is important because it am using my skills.I could have improved the following SLO Mastering skills needed in career and college better by making sure my pictures were in focus.
Overall the most important things I have learned in this class or during this project this year are that there is so much to photography because a lot of people think you just press one button and take a picture. There are many setting and many other ways to take pictures. These skills I have learned in this class will help me in the future in case I want to be a photographer as a job or a hobby
