Skills Review

SKILLS REVIEW – Photo Production

Counts as two assignments: 2&3


You should know how to take a roll of film, develop, print, scan the photos, then modify the images in Photoshop and submit them electronically using InDesign. This assignment shows me that you know what you are doing.
This project should refresh your skills from pervious courses, and show me what you can do. I am available to answer questions, but if you are NOT able to complete this assignment within the given time, you might be asked to switch to Photo 11, where you will learn all the required skills.
