Henri Cartier-Bresson The Decisive Moment 1908-2004 The father of modern journalism and street photography Founded MAGNUM (along with Robert Capa) - a cooperative picture agency owned by its members which supported photography in the service of humanity, and provided arresting, widely viewed images.

"To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression." ~ Cartier-Bresson
Your assignment is to somehow capture motion and/or time on a 36 exposure roll of film.
Bracket your shots - use multiple exposures to "try things out". If you are still having trouble metering and getting proper exposures (which is evident by your negatives) - see me. Figure out if you need a slow or fast shutter speed and change your aperture accordingly - don't take the picture unless the camera "tells you it's ok". METER! Be adventurous - change your perspective, angle or view. Work with a friend - try to schedule time to shoot outside of class. Make sure you use a tripod for time exposures or have your camera stay still somehow (table tops). The longer your exposure, the more likely you will get camera blur. Try to "shoot from the hip" to get unusual compositions and effects
