Hopefully, now that the yearbook is on its way to the publisher, your batteries are still "charged" and you are ready to hit the next 20 days of school "head on".
AWE4MI students: Your points are due on June 11th . Talk to me if this is going to be an issue. Your portfolios and pages are your main responsibilities from here on out.
AWE3MI students: Your product label design is due next Wednesday. Your advanced photo assignment is due on the 10th of June, and you have your Portfolios to be working on. You are busy. For those who have spent too much time "spinning your wheels" you will definitely feel the crunch over the next few days.
The sign up sheet for portfolio interviews will be posted later this week (on the back of the door into 110). It's "first come first served". IF you have ALL your tasks completed, and your interview is not on an exam day, you do NOT need to attend class (although, all extra hands that can help with handing out the yearbook when it comes in are greatly appreciated).
How well do you know a Photoshopped image from a real one? To celebrate 25 years of Photoshop Adobe has released a quiz that lets you test your skills of observation.
“Real or Photoshop” takes you through 25 images and simply asks you if the image in question was created in camera or created in post production—some of the shots are easy to nail, but more than a few in the line-up are very tricky.
Take the quiz and share how you did in the comments.
Unfortunately, I will miss class today, as I am at an important curriculum meeting at the Board Office. As I have said from the start, there is no reason why progress can not be made towards our goal without my presence in the classroom.
We are on the home stretch, and deadlines are fast approaching. It is ALL HANDS ON DECK, as we need to make great strides in finishing the book this week. If you HAVE ANY QUESTIONS please ask your editor Alec or your photo editor Sabrina. We do not have time for careless (and costly) mistakes.
I fully realize that there is a lot going on with sports, the musical, and your course loads as we rush towards the end of the year. That said, you need to stay focused and live up to your responsibilities.
AWE3MI students: Your interview layouts are now considered "due". I would like to have them all printed in your hands by the end of Thursday's class. I will not print any layout that has any sort of error, so double (and triple) check your work. "Good enough" doesn't cut it.
