Write a two page paper, in your own words, comparing and contrasting two photographers you felt were notable in the movie segments.

View the selected videos from the Photographic Processes Series and all three parts of the History of American Photography included both Modules 5 and 6. I want to show you the project assignment early so you can think about what you want to write about as you view the videos. You should have an opinion about who you felt were inspirational or exemplary photographers. These are the men and women who showed us pictures of what our world looked like and adopted the technology of their time to create those images.
Write a two page paper, in your own words, comparing and contrasting two photographers you felt were notable in the movie segments. This opinion paper should be written in an essay format with an introduction paragraph, paragraphs supporting your ideas, and a conclusion paragraph. Look at their photographs and tell me what YOU think about them and why (similar to what we do when critiquing and analyzing photos). What do their photographs have in common? What makes each photographer unique? What impact has their work had on you? I do not want any biographical information! I want you to form your own opinions and explain your opinions. Your reference page needs to include the videos the photographers are from (optional: you may also use other sources from the library and the library’s online databases, but this is not required). On the third page, insert one photograph made by each photographer chosen, that represents their work. On the fourth page, cite your sources. DO NOT PLAGIARIZE! I use TurnItIn to check for plagiarism. If you are caught you will be reported and face possible Dismissal from FCC! With this on your student record it can become virtually impossible to be accepted into another school. Don’t ruin your life by cheating!

Label your file: Lastname_Firstname_HistoricalPhotographersPaper

Can be any genre, big budget, low budget… whatever.

Pick a music video and review it. In addition to our photo concepts, you should now be considering pacing, storytelling, camera movement, and any action going onscreen. You can also consider our photo concepts, as video work doesn’t leave those behind. Can be any genre, big budget, low budget… whatever. If you have something in mind that you’re unsure of, ask your prof and send him a link. NSFW language and imagery can be appropriate for your reviews, within reason. If you are unsure, please check in. For inspiration, you may want to look at these lists of best music videos from various years.
