School of Photographic Imaging - Module 1 Pics

Postby Paul Robertshaw » Thu Jan 17, 2013 2:22 pm

Can't remember if I said that I'd signed up for the SPI "Foundations in Photography Course"? Anyway, I have just submitted my first module (after loads of IT issues at their end).

The first module was all about creative cropping. I had to submit five images as follows: Landscape, Portrait, Square, Landscape Panoramic and Portrait Panoramic, with about 10 subject fields to choose from. So, here are my entries:

Portrait: Category "An indoor, low light subject"

Image

Landscape: Category "Nature"

Image

Square: Category "A person in his own environment"

Image

Portrait Panoramic: Category "A still object (or a scene from your local environment)"

Image

Lanscape Panoramic: Category "A building or structure" (you've seen this before, of course)

Great stuff Paul, and little things like that would make a good forum challenge!

Care to share the list of subjects you had to choose from, perhaps other forum peeps might like to have a crack at them too?

Absolutely - but I will let you know for each module AFTER I have submitted them as I want each one to be my own work and not be influenced if that is ok?

Any, here was the criteria for Module 1:

Submit five images in the following formats:
  • A vertical (portrait) rectangular image
    A horizontal (landscape) rectrangular image
    A square image
    A vertical (portrait) panoramic image
    A horizontal (landscape) panormic image


Note the rule on the crops is that you have to pre-visualise each image as you take it i.e. rather than looking at a picture after it is shot and thinking "that will make a good panoramic", you have to shoot it with that crop in mind. You are only allowed to crop from two matching sides i.e. top and bottom, or left and right.

Select five subjects from this list to complete the above task:

  • A building or structure
    A night time scene
    A person in her/his own environment
    A scene from your local environment
    A landscape
    A still object
    An indoor, low light subject
    Motion
    Nature
    Reflection or shadow


Have fun!
