Year 9 photography was a little different this semester due to being in lockdown. Usually students explore film photography and process within the darkroom. The course had some major changes and I’m very proud of this group of students effort and the quality of their work completed while in lockdown. Students explored photography using mobile phones with focus on the art elements and principles of photography. They also looked at documentary photography and developed their own ideas on the topic of lockdown to create a photo essay using Photoshop. Once back in the classroom they explored digital SLR cameras and exposure settings to create some interesting images based on the topic of movement.
COVID Photo Essay
Students reflected on their time in lockdown term 3. They worked to a brief brainstorming the topic and researching documentary photographers to gather inspiration. Photoshop was used to edit, enhance and create the collage.
