The ratio is based on an ever increasing number series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21...

0+1 = 1, 1+1=2, 2+1=3, 3+2=5, etc. You might hear that called Fibonacci numbers.

If you want more on the math behind it, you can look at wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio (or talk to Ms. Faison!)

If you draw out the golden ratio in lines, you get:

If you use those same ratios to make rectangles, you get something that looks like this:

These proportions and that spiral formation show up in nature:

and in archtecture (the Parthenon is a classic example):

---------------
Your assignment is to use photography and/or PhotoShop to create a composition based on the golden ratio. I'm linking some photographic examples here to help with inspiration:

Assignment 21: Golden ratio/golden mean Cartier-bresson-hyeres

---------
You don't need to draw the lines on top of your image. (A few people asked about that).

Total points: 4
2 points: composition (did you demonstrate the concept?)
2 points: technical skill and creativity
