Project 6: Elements Photo Safari

MODE DIAL: AUTO


In this project, we are going to use our cameras for the first time to find examples of the ELEMENTS OF ART in the natural or built (man-made) environment. This assignment requires you to complete Assignment 6 before you check out a camera.

Part 1

Find examples of each of the ELEMENTS in nature. Look for line in a tree, value in the grass, or texture on a wall. These are just a few ideas, but you will need to explore the idea yourself and take pictures of each of the elements. Try to take several pictures of each example from different angles. As you are looking at them, pick the best example of each one. In case you fort the elements, here they are:

LINE
FORM                          SHAPE
VALUE
SPACE
COLOR
TEXTURE

Each of the elements you photograph should fill the frame. Unless you know how to use the camera in other modes, auto mode.

After you have downloaded the images into a folder in your OneDrive, create a contact sheet using the directions in the Toolbox link at the top of the page. You will turn in a contact sheet for this assignment.

Part 2

Write a one paragraph (3-5 sentence) reflection about your challenges or successes with this project. How did you find the pictures you selected? Why did you select these as examples of the ELEMENTS?
