Week 4: Week of 06-Feb-2023, B

  • Shot Types 2
  • Shot Types 2 preparation
    Plan your shots!
    > You will work with one or two other people.
    > You are not required to have your picture taken. Everyone must give their permission before their picture can be taken for this activity.
    > Your shots do not have to be of people. You can take them of objects.
    > Plan at least 10 different shots, meaning different shot sizes/types.
    > Write down your planned shots on a piece of paper and take the paper with you when we go outside to shoot.

  • If you have finished Shot Types 2 preparation:
    In this in-class activity, you will be transferring media from cameras to a Desktop folder and uploading that folder to Google Drive.
    > Make a folder for this activity on your Desktop and name it whatever you like.
    > The teacher will give you and your partner a camera and cable.
    > Using the cable, connect the camera to your computer. Make sure your camera is turned on.
    > Find the folder on the camera that contains the media.
    > Copy that entire folder to your project folder.
    > Rename the folder you just copied giving it a descriptive name.
    > Upload the entire folder to Google Drive.
    You will not be turning this in on Google Classroom. The teacher will come around and check your progress. You will be doing this with more than one camera.

  • If you have finished everything above, you may:
    > Work on Premiere Pro. Learn new stuff!
    > Work on your Seedbed project.
