UTFC Greenscreen Image Sourcing
Module 3.4 Physical Attributes
Project: UTFC Greenscreens
Client /Prof: Internal
Completion Status: Started Apr 3
Staff Guidance: Maddy/Valerie
Description: Sourcing images for use in UTFC classes
To be completed: June 1
For this module, I was tasked with a different sourcing challenge: finding public domain images of French art that fit the vocabulary for the lesson. Maddy gave me a few starting points in the Met Museum and the US National Gallery collections. From there, I searched images that exemplified the vocabulary words. Many of the words involved hair color or facial features, so it was interesting to look for certain features in the paintings and sculptures (blond hair was particularly difficult to find!). I also found that certain databases had better metadata than others because I could search with vague descriptors (such as blond hair) and relevant images would appear. With the National Gallery’s database, I either had to know the name of the specific artist or a keyword in the title of the piece. Needless to say, I ended up finding most of the images in the Met Museum’s collections.
To the final Powerpoint!
