1. Portfolio Tab
The purpose of your portfolio is to showcase the work you think is your best and most successful. You should pick 5-10 pieces of your best photographs and tutorial images. Please caption each image with the assignment it is from and the type of compostion it best represents. Create a Portfolio tab/page. It can be inside your Photography page or on the main navigation.
*Note: Use either the IMAGE icon and make your photo large, or use the GALLERY Icon so that your images can be viewed larger after your site is published.
2. Artist Statement
Writing your Artist Statement. The purpose of artist statements is to describe to others the intent of your artwork, your process, and show your thinking and learning.
Please write in complete sentences, in paragraph form and check your work for spelling and grammar. Remember when you refer to yourself it is “I” NOT “i.” This will count in your grade. You are writing to the world here, not just to me.
Make sure to correctly incorporate academic words that we have used in Photography such as:
Composition (how all of the elements in the photos are arranged), focal point, color, rule-of-thirds, balance, content, clarity, focus, deep depth-of-field, shallow depth-of-field, abstract, etc.
Your artist statement will be on your new Portfolio Tab either above or below your photographs.
· As you look at the work in your Portfolio tab what stands out as being your best work and why?
· How has your approach to photography changed over this year? In other words what do you do differently now than before taking this class or how have you grown?
· Do you tend to shoot a particular type of subject? What are you drawn to?
· What do you look for to take an interesting photograph?
· Now, looking at your answers to the above questions AND continuing to look at your images, write a short text (about 2-3 sentences) about you as a photographer. Promote your strengths and unique qualities as an artist.
