Whilst I am in America, I will be teaching children photography and I have therefore had to prepare various projects that I propose to teach them.
The campers range in ages from 7-15 years so I have produced a number of activities that cater for these different age groups. Over the next few weeks I plan on producing examples for the children to look at so they understand what it is they are expected to produce.
Today I carried out the ‘Create a rainbow’ project. This requires each camper to go out and find different things that have the colours of the rainbow. They will need to take photographs of these objects so that when the images are put together they form the colours of a rainbow. What will make this project interesting is the different textures/patterns that will appear on each colour.
Within this exercise the campers will be taught about macro photography and the importance of looking at things differently to see if they can create an interesting photograph by getting close to the subject.
Here is my example:
