Assignment 2: Weekly goals due Friday 9/18

Post  Admin on Wed Sep 16, 2015 10:23 am

Create a set of weekly goals for yourself. Each week, there should be a measurable definable goal.

For example: "I will take 5 photos" is measurable. ("I will take photos" is not.)  Make sure you include some work that can be done during studio time each week.

Project Management skills - being able to break a large complex project into smaller steps.

Grading - 2 points possible
1 point for setting weekly goals
1 point for making the goals measurable

Weekly Update Chart
Classes end on the 25th of January

Week One – September 8th -11th, start year, get topic, check.

Week Two – September 14th – 18th. Select topic, “Motion of People;” and acquire photos as the weeks progress. Take some water shots, over, and above. I will use my own clear glass.

Week Three- September 21st is picture day, I shall get some pictures of people as they go about their lives, hopefully outside of school. Any pictures I cannot use I will turn over to yearbook. From the 22nd to 25th I will edit photos, and plan a photo shoot in Detroit for the weekend. My subject will be street photography.  

Week Four – The 28th of September, design cover for book publisher, stay within guidelines of 8.5 x 11 inches.

Week Five to Six – The 5th – 16th of October I shall use to capture some motion photography. As the days will begin to become shorter, it is a perfect time to capture the movements of light. This shall use long exposure on cars, people, bikes, and more.

Week Seven – 19th -23rd Review photos, edit if I have not already, work on some graphic art to change it up a bit. Choose publisher for hardcover book. (Between, and Amazon)

Week Eight – 26th – 30th Get supplies for aerial photography, test it out. Buy the apps. Assemble the phone sky-fishing device.

Week Nine – The 2nd – 6th of November, the end of first quarter. Review images, pinpoint areas where some parts of the collection are lacking, edit the pictures which need tweaking from Halloween photo shoot.

Week Ten – 9th – 13th, collect the objects needed for aerial photography, take pictures as the week progresses, if the weather does not allow it, I will work on graphics and editing.

Week Eleven to Twelve – 13th – 27th Review all photos, edit where needed, and assemble about forty of the best.
Week Thirteen - 30th of November the Fourth of December – Start designing a cover for print book, get in touch with self-publishers, have the twenty five to fifty dollars, think about e-books as well.

Week Fourteen – 7th – 11th, finish book cover, assemble the book. Check for any typos, margin size errors, or any unpleasing arrangements.

Week Fifteen – 14th – 18th, send book out. This allows about one month for shipping and processing. Look for places to hold a print art show; I can tie this in with my 2D art Senior Project. Contact coffee shop/restaurant.

Week Sixteen – 21st – 22nd, Winter break starts on the 23rd, get items together for show, and make cards.

Week Seventeen – January 4th – 7th, finish art show, hopefully get book.

Week Eighteen – 11th – 15th, collect pictures from art show, resent book, print out any extra photos not present in the show. The show will most likely be held at a park, coffee shop, or restaurant, or inside the school in a co-op with Jack Thomas. If held in a park, I will organize it with the city/owner, and make some arrangements because it will be cold in the middle of winter.

Week Nineteen – 18th to 27th, last week of senior project, get items out of the classroom, and my work off the hard drive. Make last post in forum. ;-; {I will haunt the school forums.}
