Read the information at the above web sites in relation to composition and using the rule of thirds and golden mean theories in photography.
The task for this week is to create photographs using the rule of thirds and the golden mean. You will design your photograph (cutting out black and white paper and creating a collage of your ideas). Then you will photograph your design, develop the negative film and then make photographs.
The theme is still life (subject matter) the concept (meaning is mood). Thus using still life objects create a mood (sad, happy, somber ect...)
