Mrs. Emmy Charron is your guidance counselor at CTE. She will be working with us throughout the year and is an excellent resource for you during your senior year.

Today’s Goal: Learn about where to look how to access resources, Get to know who can help you, and build confidence about the college planning process.
Depending on when we finish, you will work on the Manual Mode Scavenger Hunt.
12:45 Illustrator Feature Slam
With a partner pick one or two less obvious tools (things we may not have used or seen used) and learn about them together. You can use adobe help, google, etc….
Prepare to show / teach us all how that feature or features work. Your instructional sessions should be quick and last not much more than a minute. The tech world likes to call these quick feature demos a Slam.
We’ll start the Slam at 1pm. Be quick! “and that’s a slam!”

Street Photography Project
At the core, Street/Documentary Photography is spontaneous and captures activity as it is happening. Unscripted and interesting. Emotions, action, interesting camera angles.
Shooting Mode: Choose raw.
Activity, Over the next several days, find and shoot at least 12 interesting subjects in action (or inaction). You may choose to shoot in any mode you want – Aperture, Shutter or Manual. Even Automatic if you are having some challenges
Shoot lots of images. Select your favorite 5. and delete the rest. When you return to class next week we will convert them to jpegs after adjusting the tones.
Long Exposure Practice
Shutter speed is the key to long exposures. Try some long exposure photography this weekend. This is just experimenting and having fun with your camera. This is not an assignment, just an extra.
It’s a long weekend, so enjoy your camera and explore the magic of photography.
