Assignment Number Forty Three
DUE WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, BY SHOWTIME
A photograph that is created to look like something from an earlier time. A “period” piece is an image that calls to an earlier era, but is created in our contemporary time. “Bonnie and Clyde”, “Apollo 13″, “Phantom of the Opera”, that movie where that idiot actor drowns after the boat unexpectedly sinks…
These are all ‘period’ pieces. Styling, camera choice, lens choice, lighting and post production all go into making a strong “period” piece. This will be one of those shots that shows your creativity – as well as you ability to solve problems and meet challenges for the photography.
Subject matter is open – portraits, still life, landscape/environ. Be very careful and detailed with this shot – as detailed as possible.
Please be very detailed in letting us know what period you are working toward achieving. Is it the thirties, forties, sixties? Is it the 80′s.
Please nothing from 1990 forward… Let’s go for big hair or big bows or big fenders. Yes, this is a very difficult assignment and you are getting an extra week for it. No critique on Thanksgiving week.
Thanks to Steve Collins for the cover shot.
