This assignment asks you to explore topics along two lines--1.) amateur production of art and 2.) defining visual artistry.
Here are the steps:
go to the flickr Web site. If you do not have a flickr account, create one.
Next, browse through flickr images with an eye toward exploring questions related to amateurs in photographic art and definitions of photographic artistry. Identify an image that sparks some insight in terms of the topic, and then select the Gallery icon above the image. (Note some images might not have this option.) First Create a New Gallery--a collection space related to your project--and then add the image to the gallery. Once you have added the image, you can work on a description of it in the gallery. Collect more images and describe them. Also use the Note function to "read" sections of the image and add annotations. Collect at least four images that speak to amateur artistry.
Next, create a blog posting on our class Web site. In your blog posting, create a link to your gallery and then identify one image from the gallery you would like to discuss in more detail. Embed the image in the blog posting and then write a paragraph or two discussing the image in terms of amateur photography and/or visual artistry.
Post the completed blog entry to the class Web site by Tuesday, March 30th.
