Portraits of Time Portraits of Time Presentation Transcript

  • Portraits of Time: A Study of Composition & Light You will use composition and light to create a series of self-portraits. These images will capture the essence of the 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
    • Discuss in class and brainstorm in sketchbooks
    • 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. **
  • Elliott Erwitt
  • Objectives: To practice the skills you have learned, you will take a series of self-portraits that capture a moment in time. To help you understand the concept of capturing a moment, you will analyze the work of Elliott Erwitt. His work will inspire you and to help you create thought-provoking and creative original artworks.
    • What You Will Do:
    • Use what you have learned about composition to take a minimum of 40 pictures that reflect your best time of day.
    • As part of your 40 pictures…
    • self-portrait of your hands
    • self-portrait of your feet
    • self-portrait of your face
    • *** These should all focus on the SAME moment –
    • one of your best moments in time. ***
