PHOTO ONE--HVCC main page

Fall 2017--Jaeger

There is no special homework for Oct 19.

The next critique is Oct 26 and it will require a group of pictures around the idea of making your subject. That means creating a situation, or a model, or a sculpture, or some kind of set that you then photograph. The final result is the photograph, not the creation, but you have to make it to get the photo.

How to save your images off the Q drive outside of the classroom

...for the end of each semester

  1. 1)choose the ones you want (you won’t have room for all of them)

  2. 2)go into a computer on campus, open the Q drive, open the folders one by one to get into ARH 129, Jaeger, etc. until you find your folder

  3. 3)go to the dates of the images you want and open those folders

  4. 4)in these folders are your actual images...most will be RAW files, which you will need a program like LR or other to open. But you will also find your Photoshop files--they have a different file name--and these are the ones you worked on for class, in case that’s your starting point

  5. 5)drag the images one by one into a folder you have created on the desktop

  6. 6)when you have all the images you want, open up the computer (lower left, click computer...) and find your USB thumb drive (often labelled E)

  7. 7)move the folder of images on the desktop to this thumb drive

NOTE: if you can remember to do this in class, or from the Photo I computers in the library, you can choose your images in Lightroom and Export them into a folder or directly onto your USB drive.
