I teach at an all women's college in Wisconsin and have both traditional and non-traditional students with a variety of learning styles and experiences with technology. To assist my students I created a basic introduction to PhotoShop focusing on layers and selection tools. In class I demonstrate a basic overview of the things they will be doing. In addition, I hand out a se tof step by step instructions. Students are told they can "play" to complete the assignment, use the step by step directions, or a combination.

Non-traditional students do not always like to "play" and explore -- they want to know what they have to do, which is why I created the directions.

My current project is a combination of three photos that tell a poignant story. I will not be teaching this project to the class until the spring 2014 semester.

I have one assignment in my Photography class where the students must photograph the sky, then change the color(s), add zoom effects (to make it appear as if the clouds are coming towards you), and make any other adjustments to create an enhanced, dramatic sky scene. They must turn in their original sky photo, along with the enhanced one. When we view the images, they must describe to the class what they did to make the creation they made. They seem to enjoy this because it's sort of like "playing with Mother Nature."

I have a nice image editing project that involves duplicating a product photo and recoloring it to create 4 versions of the same product. Students like this a lot.

Una de las prácticas que más les gusta a mis estudiantes desarrollar es el ejericio titulado Re-interpretación de una obra pictórica a través del uso de la fotografía. Ellos comprenden la importancia de la composición y de la luz en la pintura. Eligen a su artista preferido y aprenden a ver con otra mirada una de sus obras. Se plantean el reto de re-interpretar fotográficamente la obra elegida, lo que permite poner en práctica sus conocimientos sobre iluminación y el manejo de la cámara digital. En un segundo momento experimentan con las herramientas de Photoshop para obtener un efecto pictórico en la fotografía creada por ellos mismos.Principalmente utilizan los pinceles y los filtros artísticos para lograr el efecto pictórico deseado. Para completar este ejercicio ellos tienen que reflexionar sobre el proceso creativo que desarrollaron y reconocer la destreza y habilidad del artista plástico elegido en la realización de la obra que fue el punto de inspiración para realizar su re-interpretación.
