Project 5 Narrative


Basic Summary

You are to create a series that implies a narrative.  Each image should tell a story on it's own.  But you also have to make 3 images.  Hope that makes sense.  

What do I want you to turn in an how?  
Bring at least 3 images to class next Monday March 26th.  

Suggestions and ideas to get started

By imply a narrative, I mean you can choose how literal or open ended you want the narrative to be. Images can only explain so much in terms of storytelling, but remember this is a powerful limitation. Generally the more obvious your narrative is, the less interesting it is. You must consider ever part of your image to offer clues as to the what the setting, conflict, and possible resolution of your narrative is.    I do suggest you pick a narrative that you find has a parallel with a personal narrative you have in your own life.  Your narrative must be original, it may be inspired by past works but not slavishly reproducing them.  

You have only a few images to work with.  Compose it with the greatest amount of intent possible.  Consider you lighting, and placement.  What do we see in the frame, what is hidden?  use a tripod if possible.  Compose your scene like a still life.
