Begin by looking through all of the above PDFs. Notice the types of photos that are used for each
technique, for example, the expressionism technique uses a portrait photo that has a blurry
background. When you do this technique you should have a similar photo or the technique will not turn well. Note: You may have to take more photos at home to bring in for this assignment and with this example you may have to blur the background before you begin
.
Once you have looked through the PDFs, you will go through your original photos and choose
photos that will work BEST for each technique or take new ones. You may NOT use images that you have used for other assignments and posted on you weebly for credit.

You will complete 4 of the techniques. You will have at least 8 images in total and each image is worth 10 points. You will need to turn them in on your PUBLISHED WEEBLY. Unpublished or not done work will receive a zero.
