Photography Club

Welcome to Photography Club

Hello photography club members. I will be your photography club adviser this year. Mrs. Cruickshank will be assisting me with helping you learn more about photography as well as have some fun with our photos. I am attaching the dates of our meetings to this site so you are able to know ahead of time when the meetings are. I will ALWAYS let you know if for some reason I have to cancel a meeting. Listen for announcement at school or check this site, Google Classroom, our calendar or our Google Drive folder. I have also attached a copy of the permission form for you need to join the club. I look forward to having a great year with you and getting to know our new members.

**If you are going to use your phone as your camera please be sure to have your parents help you put Google Drive onto your phone. We will be using Google Drive to share our pictures.

Below is our first real adventure with photography 2016. The kids had to come up with an idea they could draw in chalk that they could put themselves into. This is the result of their creativity.

The kids had a lot of fun designing their picture to put themselves into. We may try this again in the spring.

The kids had a great time creating the perspective photos below. We looked at how positioning what's in the picture can change our perspective.

To the left someone appears to be hiding in the grass watching a giant eat her friend.

To the right, Minnie Mouse is driving recklessly and hit one of the girls.

We need to work on focus and depth of field but they did a great job with the perspective.
