Day 20 & ROT – 9/20

Today’s sunrise. Reminder I love day 20. Thinking it might be a grade all it’s own. Think of it as a pop quiz.

Day 20? Yep that means another Summative for the grade book.


Speaking of Gradebook. Under Student Expectations from the course syllabus. All work turned in for grading must include student’s name, high school, and class period. That’s because this is what the grade book looks like on my end:

Gradebook


Lastly. Rule of Thirds. That’s well focus on shooting today. And most likely tomorrow.

Rule of Thirds 

In photography, the rule of thirds is a type of composition in which an image is divided evenly into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, and the subject of the image is placed at the intersection of those dividing lines, or along one of the lines itself.

Time100 – 9/19

Today you will be looking through all 100 images from Time Magazine’s Top100 images of all time. Follow the instructions and return the worksheet before you leave class.
