How to take great photographs - student workbook

Kia ora!

I have always loved teaching my students how to take great photographs, it always amazes me what they can create. Photography is a skill that can be used across the curriculum, and once the children become discerning around what makes a good photograph, their creativity really comes to life. One of my favourite photography lessons is getting the children to create their own writing prompts using random objects in the class - its a great way of engaging them in the writing process.

Recently I created this photography student workbook combining all the skills I teach children. When teaching camera angles, I changed the original terms (snail, possum and giant) to some New Zealand native animals (Weta, Ngārara and Manu) but feel free to adapt to your own county.

I hope you find this workbook useful - you can use it alongside the Everyone Can Create: Photography book.

I've created two version of this book - one is a shortened workbook which would be great to share with whanau (family) on whatever platform your kura (school) uses.

Great resource. Have you thought of making it into an ebook. You already have it in pages. You can include student taken pictures as examples.

Great resource. You should think of creating an ebook out of your presentation. Include some student captured pictures. You already have it as pages document so making a book would be easy.
