For this Assignment, you will apply the concepts of photography you learned in this unit to compare and contrast two photographs from the chapter to two photographs in your life. For example, the photographs could be of your ancestors, smartphone photos of pets or food, travel landscapes, or family portraits. The Assignment will consist of two different analyses, as explained below.
Photograph Analysis 1:
First, select a photograph from the text and a photograph from your life. Try to select a set for the analysis that you think are interesting as a pair, either in their similarities or their differences. Be creative in your selections, but be sure you can explain both works based on the readings and can communicate to a reader why you put these together.
Your analysis should include appropriate terminology from this unit, the textbook, and the following criteria:
- Explain the photograph as though the reader has never seen it. What do you see?
- Describe the image and the style. Then, do the same with your modern selection.
- Assess the two photographs in comparison with each other and share your perspective. Why did you choose to analyze them together? What can one indicate about the other? Why did these photographs stand out to you?
