(scenes with both very dark and intensely illuminated regions.)
- focal area is atypical.
(the camera may not "guess" what region of the scene needs to be ideally exposed.)
- varied tones of subject matter.
(subject may need to be very dark (e.g. tuxedos) or very light (e.g. wedding gowns) but the camera assumes a 50% gray average.)

Mid-Term Exhibit: All works should be hung by 4pm next class.
We'll discuss any final adjustments, labels, etc. during class.
All labels and gallery sheet (list of works/artists) are to be completed by Friday before you leave.

What's left to work out?

Media Center (in HU Library has a large format plotter. (42" wide?)
You'll usually need to leave your job with them for about a day -- but turnaround time varies, so ask the service provider.

Media Center can also print fairly good quality color laser prints at up to 13"x19" Consider printing on "glossy card stock" to get their best output. You may have to print a page of exposure-varied proofs to figure out your best exposure-color settings for your final print, but with a bit of prep, the laser printer work fine as long as your image is bold, rather than having very subtle color and value transitions.

Note that Quality Office (268-5862), on the corner of Pleasure and Main, has a nice color plotter. They currently have 36" wide rolls of glossy paper, and 42" rolls. If I understand their pricing, the cost for 36"x12" would be $11.58; 42"x12" would be $13.51. They can print at most any length with a 10" minimum. ]_________________________________

A: There is no penalty, however, those who turn in their project at the originally scheduled time (Wed./Thurs.) will get 2% bonus for on-time completion.

Q: What do I do if I want to use the Friday deadline/class?
A: Communicate by email, telling me you will be attending this class meeting, rather than the regular Wed/Thurs meeting. (otherwise, you're expected to be at your Wed/Thurs class with Nature Study completed.)

Q: Do I have to attend the regular "last class" if I attend this class time?
A: No.
You must come to one or the other, but don't need to come to both.
