After Solomon rediscovered his v-tech camera at the back of the cupboard, we decided it would be a good time to do a project on photography.
The week started with a presentation and videos on photography and the history of photography.
The children then helped making their own pinhole camera, following instructions from the National Geographic's Guide to Photography.
The children were also given three photographic assignments:
- Self-portraits with composition and framing (not for the blog!).
- Monochrome and shades (following this week's BBC Your Photos theme)
- Textures, curves and patterns.
All the children enjoyed getting out and taking photos, although special mention for Sam who won the household photography competition for his monochrome graffiti.
Next week's project: Wassily Kandinsky
