No School
on the computers
Show photos taken while in mexico, show camera and explain possibilities with the small camera.
Introduce bridge, crop tool, marque,move and layers. no assignment to hand in
Do a short lesson for the ones gone the day before. others study time.
Open up 8x10.google barns-choose one for all. Teach resize, duplicate image, filters,@a,@c,and @v. The students will do the first image with me, then they will use filters to create the best for themselves. All 6 will fit on the one page because we made sure the width was 3.5 then the constrained proportions will keep it in the right proportion.
today will be a day to work the crop tool. Set up a 8x10 paper, google _______ . We will duplicate the image and crop with a 4x6 or 6x4 get the best image we can from there.We will crop 1 image 4 times and resize to get them on 1 sheet for grading.

the students must have time now to do 4 - 6 of their own show the orginal on the left and the crop to the right. The pics will need to be sized to get 6 on each page 3 orginals and 3 crops.
I am thinking what is the best next step to take them to so that they are more computer ready. Review contact sheet, what it is for and how to create it.
Decide with the group what the first assigment will be- I am thinking of live plants as the theme.
Find photos of still lives with plants. to show, lighting is photography.
