Photography 1- Leaves/Texture and Getting Ready for DOOT

Photography I students are finishing up an assignment on leaves and texture. Students were to look for as many kinds of  leaves as possible. Leaves on trees, or on the ground. In order to fulfill the texture requirement, the students had to create a good amount of contrast in their negatives. This meant the leaves should have been in open sunlight. Students were also looking for interesting effects of light and shadow: one leaf casting a shadow on another, or on the ground or branch beneath it. Students had to pay attention to how the leaves interacted with each other and with the frame of the picture (negative and positive space). Crop in close enough so there's no wasted space, but not to forget that space can be a useful compositional tool.

Photography I students are getting ready for "Doing Our Own Thing". DOOT is an art competition that encourages creativity in students. All winning pieces will be displayed during the month of  November in the Armory Performing Arts Youth Art Gallery. The students that their work has been entered will get the opportunity to attend workshops on Friday, November 4, 2011.
