Room Kea, Woodlands Full Primary School, Year 1-3. Teacher: Tina Tuliau.
The students have been learning how to operate a camera and take photos by using the basic settings on the camera. The students looked at other student’s photos and discussed how the colour, light and placement of the image helped to make it an effective photo. Students from the senior classroom mentored the students from the junior classroom, teaching them about focus, zooming in and out and angles – mouse, giraffe and possum.
I wanted to take a photo that was looking up (Possum angle). This angle has emphasised the large trunk of the tree compared to the thin branches at the top of the tree. I had to keep the camera really still when taking my photo so that the photo will be clear and you would be able to see all of the fine details in the tree. I wanted the largest of the trees to be on the side of the photo instead of in the middle. The part I like most about my photo is the bare branches at the top of the tree before they get their leaves. It makes them look a little bit spooky.
