Final Project - You will have the remainder of the term to create a thematic body of images, which work together as a whole. The images may be of any subject or style you desire. They may work together in a literal, visual, technical, or emotional fashion. Examples of thematic projects will be presented and discussed. The project may be a continuation of something you began for an earlier assignment.
It is of the utmost importance that the subject you choose for this project be one, which is easily accessible to you. Do not choose a subject, which is far away or has limited access. Begin to photograph with an idea in mind. Once you process and print you will realize changes you need to make when you re-shoot. The more you are able to go back and re-shoot the better the project will be. Remember your original idea is only a starting place. The better projects will evolve as you photograph.
Unless specific permission is granted for your project, the work will be presented in the final critique, as unmounted 11"x14" finished fiber based gelatin silver prints. However, do not hesitate to inquire regarding potential alternative presentations.
Additional to the project mentioned above you will also submit a contact sheet from each roll of film you exposed throughout the term, and the ten best images you previously printed for previous assignments to the final critique. The final project will be submitted after the final critique for review. It needs to be in a box or suitable carrying container to protect it.
THE FINAL PROJECT IS DUE DURING THE FINAL CRITIQUE, WHICH WILL BE SCHEDULED DURING EXAM WEEK!!! PLAN ON BEING THERE!!!
