POINT A MINUTE PENALTY FOR LATE MIDTERMS.
MUST HAVE THIS MIDTERM PREPARED AND TURN IN EXACTLY AT
4 PM SHARP
By signing, I agree that this midterm is my original work and I have not copied work from a book or another student. I understand that if I use other work from a book or online or from any other source, I will attribute that source. I understand that the maximum penalty for cheating is dismissal from school.
This is an open book, open anything take home exam.
1. Write your exam on separate sheets of paper. BE THOROUGH.
2. Use THIS sheet as a cover sheet and GLUE it on the OUTSIDE
of a 9x12 envelope.
3. Number each page and put you name on each page.
4. Staple all sheets together.
5. Place you written exam inside the 9x12 envelope.
6. DO NOT HANDWRITE THIS PAPER
7. CREDIT YOUR SOURCES
ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS
- Using your book or ANY other media or material, tell me how a color image is formed on a digital sensor. Further, explain how an image is collected on a digital camera sensor and turned into a digital image.
- Find a photographer of national prominence (not a local photographer or someone from a
trade magazine). Describe what he or she does best. Apply it to what you have learned in class, or what you hope to learn in the future about photography. Also, discuss how that photographer uses light and composition to make photographs work. EXCLUDE ANSEL ADAMS. (You must have a different photographer for question three.) YOU MUST ANSWER THIS QUESTION WITH CARE. YOU MUST APPLY IT TO YOUR WORK USING CRITICAL THINKING. WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM THIS PHOTOGRAPHER? (See examples below).
- List and explore THREE tips from Peoplescapes (in your syllabus) that you have found useful. Tell me WHY they are useful from your perspective. YOU RECEIVE ZERO CREDIT FOR THIS ANSWER UNLESS YOU DO SOME CRITICAL THINKING ABOUT HOW THESE RULES CAN HELP YOU. FIND A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO GIVES THE SAME VIEWPOINT THAT BACKS YOUR FAVORITE TIPS.
Also, research top photojournalists or photographers and produce ONE more tip that might be good for inclusion in Peoplescapes. (Do not share answers from question 2. This must be new material.) HOW CAN YOU LEARN FROM THEIR TIPS??? NO POINTS WILL BE ISSUED FOR THIS QUESTION UNLESS YOU SUPPLY A THOUGHTFUL RESPONSE ON HOW YOU CAN LEARN FROM THESE TIPS? SEE EXAMPLES
- BETTER ANSWER: ( "Observing her photographic work has helped me gain a new respect for finding dramatic lighting. I know I can find light that makes my photographs better. She finds a strong scene of light, and lets her subjects walk through it. I like that idea.")
Please footnote and write original material.
