Great way to start a year or unit in photography. Excellent handout guiding students through the Dos and Don’ts of photography. This lesson will help students learn how to balance the artistic and technical sides of photography with suggested guidelines and projects.
—A description of the differences between the artistic and technical sides of photography
—10 Dos and Don’ts of photography
—10 suggested photography projects to inspire students’ creativity
Combine this lesson with my “Scavenger Hunt,” "Photography Checklist,” and “Images in our World” lessons to create an introductory unit that covers the four art processes: Creating, Presenting, Responding, and Connecting. An excellent choice if you don’t have enough cameras and need to rotate students through a photography unit.
