  • Retakes for the Photographer Identification Test will be on Tuesday, May 12th at 3pm; make necessary arrangements.
  • DUE on Monday, May 11th – Master Recreation
    • Each of you will select one of the master photographers from the Elements and Principles Reference cards.  Once you select an artist you will choose one of their images to recreate (it does NOT have to be the image that is on the card).  Do your best to recreate the photograph; the lighting, composition, subject matter, etc.
    • You will post the master image and your recreation on your blog along with a written component.  Your written component will include the following (in paragraph format)
      • who the artist was
      • the year they were born (and died, if applicable)
      • the most prominent years in their career
      • where they’re from
      • where they went to school
      • what genre of photography
      • what about their images/work were you attracted to?
      • share what your experience was like attempting to recreate

Photographer Recognition Test – Thursday, May 7th

You all should be studying the images from the Elements and Principles Reference Cards. You need to know the photographer’s first and last name, and the decade they worked most prodominantly in.

Elements and Principles Challenge – DUE Monday, April 13th

Alright, we are getting ready to make our Reference Cards for the Elements and Principles…I challenge you to take a photograph for each Element and Principle.  Now that you have been introduced to your vocabulary, practiced using each, your compositions should be improving.  Show me what you’ve got!  🙂

MAC@BAC Photography Assignment

Hello All,

I hope you are all looking forward to the MAC@BAC exhibit tomorrow!  As we discussed in class, there will be an assignment attached to your attendance of the show.  Each student is required to participate in documenting our show; essentially you have been hired as Event Photographers.  You must get the images to your client (me, via DropBox) by the end of day on Tuesday, April 7th.  Your goal will be to capture the event in 10-25 photographs.  The 10 required shots include (in no specific order):

Shot 1 – If you have a piece(s) in the show, get a photograph taken of you in front of your artwork.

Shots 2, 3, and 4 – Photograph at least 3 other artists in front of their work (the goal is get everyone photographed).

Shots 5 through 10 – At least 3 photos of the general atmosphere, music, and space. The audience looking at the work and/or candid portraits.

Good luck! Use this as a safe place to practice your skills.  I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night!  🙂

Also, just a sweet reminder that donations of soda, juice, and wine are still being accepted tomorrow morning in Perdomo’s room; and don’t forget to buy your tickets on-line in order to avoid the line. 🙂

Here are some links that you find useful:

Hello all, hope you’ve had a great Spring Break!

  • Wine
  • 2 Liter Bottles of Soda

Link to buy tix:

Top works from all grade levels will be chosen for inclusion in the exhibit this week.  Remember this is a juried exhibit and we consider it an honor to be included. Late or unfinished works will not be included.


It takes a group effort to pull off an amazing show. We need help from both student and parent volunteers before, during and after the show. Here is a list of jobs. If you would like to help out please email Ms. Preston at:

  • Transporting Artwork to BAC on Monday 3/30 and Tuesday 3/31. Exact times TBD. We are seeking two energetic parents with large vehicles!
  • Installing artwork in the gallery on Tuesday 3/13 and Wednesday 4/1. Times TBD. 2-4 parents.
  • During the event on 4/2 from 5:30-9:30 PM we need parents to man the admissions table, selling tickets, keeping watch on the kids, serving drinks, refilling ice. 4-6 parents total.
  • Tear down- Monday 4/6 from 9 AM-2 PM. 4 parents.

*Student volunteers are needed all for all jobs as well. Any student who would like to volunteer can email Ms. Preston and we will work with them to determine a job that fits their abilities and schedule. (Most jobs are better suited for high school students, but we will try to accommodate as many students as possible.)


We are grateful to parents for supporting the event through the donation of goods. All can be brought to MAC on Monday 3/30 and Tuesday 3/31.

  • Wine
  • 2 Liter Bottles of Soda

Dheya originally is a small town type a gal. With her move in 2015 her life has taken on a new challenge at Miami Arts Charter! Where students have been tasked to do the 365 self portrait challenge. She is inspired by her families flaws, and motivates her to put her all into her photos. She likes to convey raw feeling and emotion in her photos. She is more oganic and is in love with b&w photos along with silent films. Have a ball keeping up with her.
