(An exploration of your urban environment)
Serving as an introduction to color drawing and color theory application, this project will allow students to explore older and more authentic areas of Doha in person. They will document their experience and observations of stores and buildings through photography—focusing specifically on how the scene appears under night light. Then, working on black paper, students will brainstorm and identify what is most pertinent to the scene and draw a vignette. This project will heighten color mixing awareness and encourage students to utilize selective focus in their decision making—they must figure out what is relevant. Ultimately, by engaging in this work, students will gain greater experience with photography, long exposure, aperture, ISO, and shutter speed, gaining a desired effect that is based on experimentation and exploring perspective.
