The city of Boston is steeped in history. Your job while you walk around the city is to photograph the juxtaposition between historic Boston and the popular culture that exists there today. This is a very open ended assignment and can be interpreted in many different ways. What I want to see in your photographs is your opinion and your personal point of view on our very unique city. Think about the signs and buildings in the city that date back hundreds of years. Think about streets and burrows that speak about the history of the city, and then think about who lives there today. Who or what inhabits the city? Where do you see both old and new Boston? Who works at the city’s oldest restaurants and shops? What surrounds the oldest houses and buildings in Boston? What does our contemporary signage and clothing say about the history of the city? All of these things should be on your mind while you are photographing.
- Keep track of your camera, it is YOUR responsibility and it will have to be paid for in full if it is left somewhere in the city. The DSLR cameras are expensive and will be stolen if left.
- Do not shoot below 1/60 of a second
- FILM: Use all 24 exposures on your roll
- DIGITAL: Photograph at least 50 exposures
- Remember to push the button on the bottom of your camera BEFORE you start rewinding your film
- Always walk with a partner and DO NOT lose track of time
- We MUST meet at determined locations ON TIME (use your cell phone as a watch if you must), I expect that you will be on time.
- Keep your camera underneath your sweater or jacket when you aren’t using it to keep it from getting too cold (the shutter sticks open if it freezes)
- Be aware of your surroundings and stay safe
- Technical Quality
