We are currently working on a project dealing with the concept of perspective and point of view. Students can make any type of image they like, with the emphasis on breaking away from traditional habits of centering images or only using standing eye view.
After today's lecture on lenses and focal length, as well as a process critique of select images taken, students were asked to play a game - a seeing game. Having only 30 minutes, students went around the classroom and hallways of the school to take pictures of objects in ways that resembled letters to their names.
It was fun to see students search out letters and try unusual methods to solve this design problem. I am particularly proud that this mini-lesson was inspired by one of my students.
