Term 2 will see you becoming successful photographers. [- if you listen, watch, and participate fully.]
This will be related to scientific photography for science fair. [You may also do other sections of the science fair]
You will also be introduced to the idea of documentary photography. That is when you take photos to tell a story about something you have experienced. It is a cool way to keep a record of interesting things around you and allows you to express yourself in your own unique way - no one sees the world quite like you do.
You will produce images which we will 'critique' together to develop your technical skills and your photographic 'eye'.
We will be doing this in class time and in I.C.T..
It will be fun and you will succeed. I know what I am doing...
We can use school and personal digital cameras. I will introduce you to single lens reflex cameras also. If successful, this may lead onto a film study unit in Term 3.
Do you have photos you have taken and are proud of? Who likes taking pictures?
I love photography!!!
p.s. I love this photo of Manny playing at Kawhia but there are several things 'wrong' with it. By analysing photos together, we will develop our understanding of how to take better pictures.
