Assignment Specifications

(Subject matter, number of images, size, properly naming files, resolution etc.)

Subject matter does not satisfy assignment.  Images are missing or too many; student needed to edit down number.

/10

Images meet the minimum level of quality and subject matter to satisfy the assignment.  Subject matter could be improved; some images appear to be filler material.                                 /15

Strong choice of subject matter.  Images are edited to include only the strongest images.  Proper size, naming and resolution.

Composition

The images are shot in a plain manner, distracting from the composition and leaving image stagnant.  Backgrounds are busy or distract from the focus of the image.                                  /10

Image composition has potential, but other angles, focal lengths and positioning of subjects will improve image. 

 

/15

Strong composition, images are strong because of layout and placement of camera to model.

Image Quality

Images are not properly exposed and/or focused. Images have not been corrected in Photoshop for colorcast, sharpness, and clone-stamp out distracting elements of image.

 

 

 

 

/10

Images are slightly out of focus creating a distracting element in the photograph.  Slight sharpening could improve quality and effectiveness of image.

Image needs additional work in Photoshop to be properly exposed, (lighting, color, levels).  Overworked in Photoshop; images do not look natural, overly filtered/manipulated.              /15

High quality images, properly exposed, effectively retouched/altered without being distracting.

Concept

Student needs to further polish project idea in order to avoid the obvious interpretation of the assignment.  Further brainstorming ideas is recommended.                      /10

Ideas for images and satisfying assignment are there, but the execution needs improvement.  Tell the idea/story through another “angle”

/15

Strong and effective concept.  Idea is communicated well without giving more than is needed.

Use of design Elements

Assignment needs refining with use of elements and principles of design.

 

/10

Assignment uses elements of design, but their use could be improved to more effectively communicate the assignments                           /15

Images and composition use the elements of design to create a strong layout.
