We have began working on a public art project with the eleventh grade English classes. As a first step, we have been taking a look at old styled pictures as inspiration for our project. So we decided to take silhouette pictures of the students, which will eventually be paired with student writing. The way we took the pictures of the students is by setting up a dark studio with a backdrop and strobe lights facing the back drop, We do this to get a complete silhouette of the student without editing. We then take the pictures and style them up inside of Photoshop to get the old look we were going for. The project is expected to be up around the middle of May so stay tuned for more information. Above is a sample of what we've done so far.
