Art 264 | SCSU Fall 2020

We had our first class group critique today (virtually) and this was the best critique I’ve ever experienced for several reasons. Our professor, Jeremy Chandler, gave us a list of questions to answer for each group members work. We posted to a private group on FLICKR and put the images in an album. Each member had a chance to answer the question about the artist’s work being reviewed, then the prof commented. We methodically moved to the next question and repeated the process. This experience was totally professional and collaborative. Everyone seemed inspired and encouraged. Our teaching assistant Jim worked with Jeremy to make sure each small group session ran perfectly so we could devote the necessary time to cover all the questions properly.

I worked really hard on this assignment and went to the Duck Pond in Milford, CT at least six times in order to fulfill the assignment which was to master camera settings using shallow and deep depth of field, blurred and stopped motion and two optional artist’s choice images. My favorite images are in the right column. Everyone liked the top left and top right images most.
