Black and White Photo Challenge
(Dollar Store) Photo Prop Challenge
In this unit students explored the enduring idea of Human Diversity. Students learned the concepts of portraiture, composition, and interview techniques. Students also experienced working with human subjects under the mentoring of Lindy Drew from Humans of St. Louis. After studying the impact of social media and photography projects like Humans of New York and Humans of St. Louis, our photographers planned 4 photoshoot field trips to interview and photograph the freshman class from Lift for Life.
We studied how photographers, like Martin Schoeller, solicit empathy from the viewers of their work...
Students planned the photoshoot field trips and how they wanted their work to be assessed...
They chose several locations throughout St. Louis to take their photographs...
Lindy Drew visited the classroom twice and went on 2 of our photoshoots...
Here are more images from the photoshoots...
VR & 360° Photography
In order to get interesting photographs with our Gear 360 cameras, the students chose to go on two field trips. The first was to Art Hill at Forest Park and the second was to see the city from a downtown rooftop. The manager at the 360 Lounge at the Ballpark Hilton was very generous to let us use their space during non-business ours.
Media Production Class
The senior students in the media production class have been using the DSLR cameras to photograph people in and around LFLA to post to their social media accounts. A new project that they are working on is our school's first digital year book. They are using Instagram as the platform and have added a project specific hashtag.

Students learned about turning their photographs into screen prints using photoshop and a vinyl cutter.
