I'm very grateful for the support I received last year to purchase eight digital cameras for the art room. As a result I'll be able to incorporate photography into lessons this year for the upper grades. In the meantime, we kicked off our 5th grade Photography Club yesterday with an introduction to exposure basics and a primer on the cameras themselves. The club participants were obviously very excited to have the cameras in hand! We'll continue learning about the do's and don't's of photo composition and the in's and out's of our cameras in the coming weeks, while hopefully providing some good shots for this year's yearbook, Mr. Weber's blog, the 5th grade graduation, and as material for learning about photo editing. In the meantime, here are a few shots from yesterday's club.
