Camera for Compositions FTW!

comment : 0

Yes, I still get excited about the potential of the connected camera in the classroom.

I guess in part my excitement is because when I was at school (back at the dawn of time), the arts faculty had two.
Two.
For the whole of the subject.
Now, my students have access to photography anywhere, anytime.

Today we were working with compositional structure in Year 7, and after creating a collaborative work over the past few lessons, we had a great resource to use. By zooming in on small parts of the large mixed-media work we were able to construct new images, and there was a real buzz in the room as the girls ‘discovered’ diagonal lines, interesting surfaces, positive and negative spaces, and come fantastic details were revealed. In this way the lens helps us to ‘learn to look’, and to see our world differently.
