ASSIGNMENT: 36 Faces

You need to shoot vertical mug shots of 36 different people who you don’t know. These should be from the top of the shoulders to just over their heads.

First set are to be shot at 75 mm, filling the frame. Four in bright light, four in shade and four adjacent to a window.

Second set are to be shot at 50 mm, filling the frame. Four in bright light, four in shade and four adjacent to a window.

Third set are to be shot at 28 mm, filling the frame. Four in bright light, four in shade and four adjacent to a window.

You need full captions for each – name, age, hometown, major or job title and contact information.

I would recommend filling out the sheet you were given in class and then transferring that information into a document or email so you can minimize the amount of time you need to spend typing in the lab.

For instance, in a document you would have:

Mark E. Johnson, 42, a senior lecturer at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and originally from Medway, Mass., mejohnso@uga.xyz

In the Photo Mechanic stationary pad, you can write your generic caption:

poses in {city}, {state}, on … (Photo/Mark E. Johnson, http://www.mejphoto.com)

And then paste all of the names in there. (I also record the shirt color of the people so I can easily match them up.)

With this system, you can just copy and paste what you need, then delete what you don’t when you get to the final version of the caption in Photoshop.

This is due on the server, in one folder, by 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20.
