This year we focused on composition in our photography unit. In class students learned the basic concepts of aperture and shutter speed. Students were each given a chance to try out our school DSLRs during class. However, the majority of photos they took outside of the classroom were with either their own personal digital cameras or their cell phones. From a whopping 100-200 images they were asked to narrow down their favorites to 20 photos that exemplified the different types of composition in photography we had covered. Finally they narrowed their selection down to five for an all class presentation and critique. You can see below some samples of their excellent work. Our photo teacher will have a lot of talented students coming her way next year.
