We were so excited to get started on learning all about photography and different ways that it can be incorporated into the classroom. For our first week, we chose to sit down and really specify what direction we wanted to take our learning in (as there are endless possibilities). We decided that we wanted to experiment on different projects and assignments that we can do with a class involving photography and see how this can be an aid for inquiry-based learning.
In order to do this, we had to figure out how to use the camera that we had rented out from the Music and Media desk in the library. We chose to walk around downtown and play around with different setting, lighting, and angles for our first adventure in order to be able to make a fair project for future students! If we can’t do it, how can we expect students to be able to?
We are now in the middle of figuring out how to upload all our photos onto our computers. Looking through them quickly, some are not great, but there are a few that we are very proud of!
