This assignment is used to sum up a unit on photography. My class learns about Annie Lebovitz, Robert Maplethorpe, etc. Students are asked to chose an individual, pose, background and take a photograph. The idea is to portray a certain mood, feeling, statement, etc. They are then asked to answer questions about their photo. Then they must select a piece of art from any time period (sculpture, painting, photo, etc) and compare it to their photo. What is similar/different? Did they get inspiration from this work?
The entire thing is done online so students can insert images. A rubric for grading is on the back of the worksheet.
