What to photograph:
Photograph the people, places, and events in multiple neighborhoods throughout Milwaukee, as designated by the Milwaukee Bucks. These photos can be portraits, candids, or crowd shots; buildings and architectural details representative of a particular neighborhood; and photos from community events that show the spirit of a neighborhood (e.g., a cultural celebration, a block clean-up, etc.).
Allow the viewers to see the city through your eyes.
Be creative in vantages, angles, and perspectives.
Spend time researching your selected neighborhoods to develop a sense of place and determine the iconic or identifiable buildings and landscapes that make each area unique and help tell a story.
HOW TO SUBMIT:
- 25-30 photographs that may be selected for the project
- Files should be in the highest resolution possible, but no smaller than an 8"x10" at 300 dpi
- Files may be black and white, duotones, sepia, or other tones, but also submit files in full color.
- Files should be submitted to your teacher in a Google Folder and named in the following way:
- School_Lastname_Firstname_Neighborhood (or addresss/location)
- Use underscores ( _ ) and no spaces
- Use school abbreviations (MSHA, PIUS, EV, TOSA)
- take portrait-type photos of persons without their verbal consent, especially of minors (get the permission of their parent/guardian)
- However, crowd shots during an event where no one person is the focus are acceptable
- put yourself in a precarious situation under any circumstance
- Consider traveling and shooting with a friend or group and/or an adult (e.g., teacher or parent--no reason why families can't help out if they want to!)
- include any commercial identifiers/trademarks in your photographs, nor any team logos or team colors such as would be present in a jersey
- post anything to social media until the project is unveiled by the Milwaukee Bucks
