Project 7: Elements Photo Safari


In this project, we are going to use the camera to find examples of the ELEMENTS OF ART in the natural or built (man-made) environment. This assignment requires you to complete Assignment 5 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 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 forgot the elements, here they are:


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