This class constitutes a one-day workshop to develop vital skills regarding documentation, especially of work made in the Design One and Design Tools & Skills One classes. Keeping records of models and drawings is essential, and represents a way to chart progress throughout academic life. It’s also the foundation of any portfolio, to represent one’s working practices.
Developing a strong understanding of the basic functionality of a digital SLR camera and lighting in this workshop will allow work to be more expressive, and successfully represented to would-be viewers.
It is vital to take note of the technical settings used in order to understand the value of things like aperture, ISO and color density/fidelity for effective reproductions of work created.
All work from the semester must be archived, and submitted at the end of the term. So, it’s essential to document work in order to safeguard against loss or damage of the work.
Documentation of all models and drawings created up-to-this-point in the semester should be carried out in class today between 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. If the assignment is not completed within this time it becomes homework and is due at the beginning of the following class period.
