    Portraits of Time Portraits of Time Presentation Transcript

    • Portraits of Time You will use everything you’ve learned about composition and light to create a series of self- portraits and still life photographs. These images will capture the essence of your best moment, a favorite place, etc. as if you could make time stand still and savor just that.
    • Inspiration: • The Best Time of The Day by Raymond Carver
    • Idea Starters: In your sketchbooks, either drawing or with words, show me your best time of day or time of life. If you could make time stand still and savor a moment… • What would it be? • What would you look like? • Where would you be? • What would you be doing? • How would you be feeling? • Who would you be with? ** Include at least 5 different ideas. **
    • Objectives: To practice the skills you have learned, you will take a series of self-portraits and still life photographs that capture a moment in time. To help you understand the concept of capturing a moment, you will analyze the work of Elliott Erwitt.
    • Elliott Erwitt
    • What You Will Do: Using what you have learned about composition and lighting, take a minimum of 40 pictures that reflect your best time of day. As part of your 40 (or more) pictures… • self-portrait of your hands • self-portrait of your feet • self-portrait of your face • self-portrait of your whole body • still life images related to overall theme *** These should all focus on the SAME moment – one of your best moments in time. ***
    • What You Will Do: Use demonstration and tutorial as a guide to edit your images, then combine them to create a final “Portrait of Time” Your final piece should include between 3 and 5 images that emphasize the meaning and mood of your best moment.
