DO NOT LOSE THIS SHEET OR YOUR HAND WILL HURT FROM COPYING IT OVER!!!
A photo story is a series of photographs that tell a story from beginning to end.
First, think of a story that you would like to convey through photographs. Then fill out
the entire “Script” sheet with your planned ideas. This will help organize your thoughts
and your story. The “Script” sheet is due next class period and must be approved by me
to continue. This sheet is worth 15 points.
Once approved, go out and shoot the story.
Be creative! Take your time! Be patient! Concentrate!
Your story must include:
1 shot showing location
1 shot showing some sort of detail
The story will include as many photos as you need, but you must shoot at least 25
photos to choose from and put on a contact sheet.
Your 25 pictures are due no later than April 15th (Blue) and April 18th (White).
After you download your images, print a contact sheet using Photoshop.
The grade for having your images done and put on a contact sheet is 25 points!
Edit these photos to the best of your ability.
- Good contrast
- Good composition
- Check for spot correcting
- Good color balancing

You will get more information on this section later on, but just know that you will be
creating a short movie-set to music-to present to the class. You will not get credit if you
do not present!
Final Due Date
Final Presentations will be April 26 (Blue) and April 27 (White).
