Your response deals with the Big 4 1.Meaning 2.Codes & Conventions - a.k.a. Form 3.Connections 4.Judgement
P1: Meaning 1.What is the meaning/message of EACH text? 2. How does EACH text relate to the guiding question? 3. Establish the purpose and audience of EACH text. *BE SURE TO PROVIDE EXAMPLES, AND DISCUSS THEM!
P2: Codes and Conventions 1. Short Story Identify one literary technique (give quote or specific example) Explain how it is used in the story (how does it affect the message or the reader?) Is this technique effective? 2. Photo(s) Identify 2-3 photo techniques (discuss the specifics of the photo) Explain how they are used in the photo (how do they affect the message or the reader?) Are these techniques effective? 3. Choose your preferred text (the one you will use for the rest of this assignment). Justify / explain why you have chosen to deal with this text.
Interpreting Images and Photography Vocabulary and Techniques
6 ASPECTS OF A PHOTO TO INTERPRET Subject Setting Lighting Focus Foreground/background Shots
SUBJECT The main object or person(s) in the photograph. – What does the photograph seem to say/show about the subject? – Look at: Position Expression Actions * How do these affect the EMOTION and MESSAGE?
SETTING The PLACE, TIME, and ENVIRONMENT of the photograph. * How does the setting affect the way we see the subject, or the message of the photo? Look at: Look at: Time of day (Morning, Sunrise, Dawn, Night, etc.) Era (1960s, 2000s, 1920s, etc.) Details of the space. How is the subject(s) reacting to the setting?
LIGHTING * How does the lighting of a photo contribute to the overall meaning? Look at: Look at: Bright vs. Dark (why is one part of the photo brighter than another?) Direction of light (Is it coming from above, the side, etc…? Look at the shadows)
FOCUS The most important aspects of a photo are usually COMPLETELY IN FOCUS (sharp). What the photographer chooses to blur is important to consider. * How does the photographer communicate the meaning of the photograph using focus?
FOCUS TO SHOW SPEED
FOCUS NOT ALWAYS ON HUMAN SUBJECT
Foreground/Background Foreground – The part of the picture that is / or seems to be toward the front. Background – The part of the picture that is / or seems to be toward the back. * How does the foreground/background affect our understanding of the subject?
Different Types of SHOTS Long Shot – The subject is shown at a relatively small scale (from far away). This emphasizes setting. Close Up – A certain feature takes up the whole frame. Detail or emotion is important here.
MY SISTERS KEEPER PHOTOS Analyze the photos you have received. You should analyze the photos using 2-3 techniques from this PowerPoint. *ALWAYS EXPLAIN HOW IT HELPS CONVEY THE MESSAGE OF THE PHOTO. When discussing a technique, *ALWAYS EXPLAIN HOW IT HELPS CONVEY THE MESSAGE OF THE PHOTO. You may discuss ONE PHOTO in length OR the ENTIRE photo essay (one technique per photo or one technique used in several photos).
P3: Connections 1.Text Connection Make a detailed connection between your preferred text and another text. – Book, poem, song, short story, film, TV show, etc. Look for deeper connections (ie: think about similarities in meaning or theme). 2.Global Issue/Event Make a detailed connection between your preferred text and a global issue, or a world event (can be a historical event).
