Where to find your course work and feedback for your class this year:

On our google site:

https://sites.google.com/a/hornby.school.nz/visarts/
Book mark this if you haven't already.


If you hover over the NCEA Visual Art levels' 1 - 3 button, you get to see the course outlines drop down. you can select to see one of those there. 

Otherwise, if you want your class page, click on the blue tab directly. it takes you here:

You should all know what line you are in by now. Clicking on the correct line, will take you to your own class resources, including our shared google sheet, which also has your blog addresses on it. Because of the nature of google sites at this point, unless you have editing permissions for the whole page. you will only be able to VIEW this sheet from here. However, you do have it in your google drive in 'shared with me'. 

This is where all the feedback we have talked through in class should be recorded. It means you can always go back to it. Now that you know how to find it, I would like you to make sure you are always act…

Your work for the next week:

I am away for you guys until Thursday.
This is a group email to all the year 12’s in both my senior classes.
I feel like you are all working really well on your starts to your folio’s. There are no where near enough blog posts happening however.
By the end of Tuesday, i would like to see a new blog post from every student. I also want you to specifically comment on a blog post from 2 other students in your class. It does not matter if they are in year 12 or not.
How do you eat a whole elephant? Piece by piece - the same way you make your folio happen.
Your blog is worth credits too and it is a safe way to keep your work for when you lose your book. It happens.
I will keep an eye on who is posting and when and respond to each of you. I am expecting you to use your blog to seek feedback from me and your classmates too.
The Power point from today is on the file cabinet pages for level 2 and level 3 photography




Photography students next steps

Making a proof sheet. You need to upload your photos onto a mac, use photoshop and make a proof or a contact sheet. (We are working on CS6)

You do this by first of all transferring your photos that you took into a folder on the computer. That means you take them OFF the camera. Please delete them from the camera once you have done this.

Once you have that sorted, make sure you know where the folder is and what it is named.

Open photoshop, but do not open any files. click on FILE - then down to Automate, and select contact sheet II.

There is a button called CHOOSE. That is where you need to go, find your folder and select OK.

Photoshop is going to build your proof/contact sheet. Leave it for a few minutes to do this.

Once this is done, flatten each page and save as a JPEG. Ask me or someone who knows how, if you are unsure. Email me your proof sheet and upload it onto your blogs. There is a lot of your figuring this out for yourselves, but once you have done this, you will be sorted an…

Welcome to 2016

Hello all you photography students. If you are reading htis you are likely from one of 4 senior classes of about 20 students here at Hornby High School. Your classes are multi levelled across the 3 NCEA levels, but united by theme. These themes are still in development and not yet set fully in some classes. That is ok, it is a part of the process. The Subject based blog is a way of connecting all the students in that subject together; Photography has 11 candidates from 3 classes.

If you are wondering why I am using a blog that already has stuff on it from 2013, it is because I seemed to have had 3 photography blogs all with similar resources and ideas on them, and it seems a bit pointless to keep repeating myself. Some of our blog posts this year will include re-blogging previous posts. There are good pieces of information in them so feel free to read the older ones.

At this point, you all should have started your own blogs. I would expect to see an introductory post about YOU.  Who a…
