|David Hockney - a new perspective on seeing|
You use your camera as your eye, documenting what you see in your mind. Now I want you to use your camera to gain another perspective on your images. Artist David Hockney is a painter and therefore may think of his camera as an extension of his brush. Rather than just "point and shoot", Mr. Hockney focuses his lens and vision on his imagery as if it were a canvas he is painting in sections.
1. Research who David Hockney is.
2. Tell me something about him as both a painter and a photographer in a posted paragraph or two.
3. Compose a photograph you will shoot using the same technique. Use today and the next class to experiment with your camera and the assignment by shooting objects, scenes, and perhaps each other.
4. Create your final piece on an art board in Photoshop, using the images you have taken. You will be resizing all your images so use this technique posted on this blog to make that happen. Do NOT crop your images but use in their entirety.
Due date: Monday + Tuesday, March 5 - 6
