This week's photo theme is monochrome (black and white) images. The finished product will be a photo study created in InDesign. A sample study is shown at the bottom of this post. You will need to post-process these images using PhotoShop adjustment layers (Black & White and possibly Photo Filter).
Another project we'll be working on is a four page magazine spread. I would like to see you use images we've been taking in the photo themes for past weeks. This is to get everyone used to placing images and working with text frames in InDesign.
Ninth grade students will be finishing their calendar projects this week as well.
Two areas we can improve upon is shop attire and getting assignments in by due dates. I will be phasing out extensions over the course of the second quarter - the due date is the due date - late assignments will lose one letter grade for each day that it is late. Deadlines are an important part of being a creative designer and the reality is that extensions are rare in the industry.
