Photographing 2-D & 3-D Art
This assessment can be used in programs that teach students how to take high quality photography of their work for entering exhibitions, for web display, for personal portfolios, and for college entrance and scholarship portfolios.
Students will demonstrate the ability to shoot, process, and select portfolio-quality photographs of their works of art. In a single class period, they will photograph one of their works, bracketing the exposures or otherwise taking three different photos of a single two-dimensional (2-D) or three-dimensional (3-D) work. They will then select the best of the three photos, adjust exposure, focus, contrast, and cropping as needed, and present both the three originals and the final processed photo for scoring.
This assessment can be done one student at a time if needed, depending on available facilities, over the course of the semester; it would be used most effectively during the last half of the second semester of a full-year class or when students have sufficient quality work available to document.
This item has not been field-tested by Michigan teachers.
