Composition Discussion

Support from fellow teacher & photography class mentor, Zach Siebert. He shared with the students his work and the compositional techniques he employs in his photography.

After a class discussion, Mr. Siebert took the kids on an impromptu photo shoot to explore his process. They took 5 different group shots, arranged by 5 different class photographers.

Building the NEW Art Classroom

Learning the DSLR Camera

We spent two class periods exploring the DSLR camera and discovering what wonders and questions the students had BEFORE formally discussing photography settings like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. On the first day, students unboxed the cameras with little teacher interventions. When one student figured out how to connect the neck strap or set the time and date, that student would travel around and help their classmates. They tried out various settings, just to see what would happen. A lot of candid images were captures!
