- To develop an understanding of how a photograph can describe a subject over a period of time as selected by the photographer.
- To develop an appreciation of how the selected period of time or can affect the visual options and outcome of the print.
Remember: documentation of your design process is required. Be sure you are very familiar with the design process before beginning any Epic Quest.
Create your new project page titled TIME. Now copy and paste the following as you will need to complete and correctly document these 7 steps on the your design process:
- Understand the Problem
- Research and Investigate
- Generate Possible Solutions
- Select AND DEVELOP Best Solution
- Model and Prototype (Create)
- Test and Evaluate
- 1 or 2 final images applying the conceptual interpretation of “Time.” Your choice if you believe you have one very successful image then one is fine if you feel like you fell short of your goals then turn in two different comps for evaluation.
- Use creative problem solving for a inspired and original solution
- Develop an understanding of how a photograph can describe a subject over a period of time as selected by the photographer.
- Develop an appreciation of how the selected period of time or can affect the visual options and outcome of the print.
PROJECT REQUIREMENTS & INSTRUCTION
Design Process STAGE 1: UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM

- Thumbnail sketches should be about 4″ sketches in sketchbook
- Designs should be ORIGINAL though inspired!
- Consider possible color schemes that you can control
Design Process STAGE 4: Select and Develop Best Solution
5. Select the best solution
- notate why you have chosen it
- Finalize a new detailed sketch of best solutions
- sketch the composition of entire design plan
- Detail possible color schemes
- Document what Principles and Elements you will utilize
Design Process STAGE 5: Model and Prototype (Create)
6. Begin the shooting
- Practice, develop or refine your composition and style.
- Execute your Plan.
Design Process STAGE 6: Test and Evaluate
7. Self-reflect on your design
- Evaluate and develop your images
- Consider digital techniques to further develop your composition
- Do you need to reshoot?
- Reflect of how your composition and concept is developing into a final product.
- How could you take it further?
- Ask others for their opinions and document the suggestions whether you agree with them or not.
- Refine or develop elements of the design that can be improved
Design Process STAGE 7: Produce
8. Export and Turn in the final .JPG and Print
- Turn file into the Coulson’s server
- Get final printed and matted
- Finalize Project Page with full self-reflection
- what you learned
- Fill our grade sheet
COMPLETE: You need a fully finished project page included all scanned sketchbook work with captions. Turn your your finished artwork to the Captain’s Server. Finally Paste the URL to your project page below and you may then click complete.
