Our photographs

Digital Photography

A good photograph is a skill, and photographers don’t always get it right the first time.

The children found out that taking these steps  can help:

  • Positioning: Where is the subject matter  positioned within the frame?
  • Framing: How well is the subject matter framed?
  • Detail: Is it obvious what the main subject of the photograph is?

The children looked at the photographs they took of a view through a window, a class display and some pencils  and then reviewed how well they thought they had applied the three skills to each of the photographs. Then  they chose  one photograph to take again and thought about what they would do differently. The children shared their before and after photos with a partner, explained what they did differently the second time around and why their retaken image was better than the original one.
