IN CLASS CATALOGUING ASSIGNMENT
You should have a list of photographers in your sketchbook that have been mentioned in class. Today you will choose five photographers to begin cataloguing.
Create a folder on your Desktop titled CATALOGUE and within that folder create a separate folder with each photographer’s name. Search through online collections to download 5 examples of each person’s work. Save those images into the folder named for that photographer. Rename each file from 01 to 05. Then create a Microsoft Word file entitled Image List and save this to your photographer’s folder. In this document create a list 01 to 05 and for each image list the title, year, material, and dimensions.

Happy researching! Dig deep! There are lots of images out there, dig through them to pick the ones that speak to you.
