Media Studies Photography Rubric
The purpose of this assignment is to get you to understand how to shoot certain photographic conventions that are frequently used in media products. Take your pictures as if you were the photographer for a magazine, and you are tasked with shooting a certain style, for advertising.


Each photo should have a caption underneath to explain who is in the photo, and why it works or does not work in the convention assigned.


Print your photos on paper, either at your home printer or at a commercial establishment that does photo printing. Put this whole assignment together in a Duo-Tang Folder. Hand in the Rubric with your work. You will need to select 2, and only 2, and email those to me to go on line.


*Remember to write a half page analysis at the end to explain what you have learned.
