Third Creative Exercise (Focus Study with Still Life) due Feb 13th

The aim of this exercise is to explore the creative use of focus and blur using a still life subject. Any lens and any camera can be used and the images may be made with the camera hand-held or on a tripod. This exercise is similar to the previous exercise in that you are challenged to step outside your comfort zone with focus and blur, but instead of working with serendipity, this time you are exploring with intent. Use the view finder/screen. Move the camera, shift the focus plane and vary other parameters to play and find images that you find satisfying.

Fourth Creative Exercise (Focus Study in Monochrome) due March 13th

In our exercises so far we have been experimenting with understanding our image making processes and surrendering some of our control over these processes. To do this we have  been exploring the creative possibilities of out-of-focus areas and blur in images. In this exercise we are also going to remove colour from our images. The goal is to make up to 6 monochrome (black/white/grey) images while still varying or removing in-focus elements.

Fifth Creative Exercise (Ghosts and Shadows) due April 11th

For this exercise we will be continuing to work in mono and continuing to explore the creative use of restricted focal planes and out-of-focus areas. Thus so far we have removed colour and sharp focus from the image making process. Now consider removing the object from the frame as well. Consider how you might tell a story about an object from its reflection, imprint, shadow or other proxy.
