“You learn to see by practice. It’s just like playing tennis—you get better the more you play. The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can’t be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.” Eliot Porter

Unit 3

"What impact does learning the History of Photography have on the work you are doing today?"

Lewis Hines......................................Phillipe Halsman........................Margaret Bourke White

We will begin this unit with this question in mind..

Masterful Inspirations:

Students learn by researching, looking closely at one photographer and sharing what they have learned from photographers who are considered masters of their craft. You will present using the first person. Here is the assignment and a list of photographers that you can choose from.

Try something new and go 21st Century! Incorporate multi media ( videos, animoto) and/or try this site for your presentation http://prezi.com/

Be brave with your presentations !!!
