  • PHOTOGRAPHY RESEARCH PROJECT

  • For this project you are being asked to consider a type of photography that interests you.  Each student will then select two photographers who work in

    a photographic style that interests them, research their life, and analyze three of their photographs.

    A minimum of six photographs should be included in your presentation (3 photographs by each photographer).

    This project is due on November 2 and is worth a total of 100 points toward your final grade.

  • Photography  Research  Assignment  Guidelines     •  In-­‐Class  Presenta:on  of  two  photographers   working  in  a  similar  style.  

    •  Your  presenta:on  should  include  a  :tle  slide   featuring  the  name  of  the  assignment  and/or   the  photographers  you  have  chosen  to   research.  

    •  One  slide  should  be  included  for  each   photograph  (a  total  of  6  slides/6  photographs)  

  • Photography  Research  Assignment  Guidelines  con:nued…  

    •  Your  presenta:on  should  feature  the  following  informa:on   (somewhere  in  it  –  with  text):  

      •  Date  of  birth/Na:onality  of  each  photographer     •  Typical  subject  maOer  of  photographs  made  by  each  

    photographer  (i.e.:  portraiture,  war  photography,  fashion   photography).  

      •  What  the  photographers  themselves  said/say  about  their  

    work  (quotes  OK).     •  What  others  have  said  about  the  work  of  these  

    photographers  (quotes  OK).  

  • •  Photography  Research  Assignment  Guidelines  con:nued…     •  How  each  photographer  has  influenced  photography  at  

    large/the  field  (genre)  they  are  working  in.  

    •  One  or  two  sentences  explaining  what  design  elements  and   principles  make  their  individual  photographs  effec:ve.  

    •  What  do  you  appreciate  about  this  person  and/or  his/her   work?  

    •  Your  opinion  of  the  work  and  anything  else  you  find   important    to  share  about  the  work  of  your  chosen   photographers.  

  • Types of Photography

  • If  you  are  having  a  hard  :me   ini:ally  narrowing  it  down  to  two   photographers,  that’s  fine-­‐-­‐-­‐  we   are  going  to  look  at  a  list  of  types     (genres)of  photography.       Narrowing  down  the  genre  of   photography  you  are  interested  in   is  the  first  step.       From  there,  step  two  is  to  start  to   inves:gate  photographers  who   work  in  that  style.
