Photography 101

I only have a few hours to instruct my students before setting them loose to start taking pictures, so I take them to a couple of photo exhibits in downtown Cali so they can see some good photos. This gives me the opportunity to talk about some of the images I like as examples of good composition and other photographic concepts. After this, we break up into groups and set out to take some picts in the downtown area where these kids hardly ever get to go. Later, they’ll be given another camera to take home with them and photograph their neighborhoods. Above is a group shot of my students. As you can see some of the parents are participating in the project with their kids which I think is awesome.
