Step one. Upload your photo montage to Flickr. Create a Youth Voices post about the place you shot and how well you think the photo montage turned out.

Step two. Comment on one of the Brazilian student's initial blog posts. Introduce your community by providing links to your Flickr photostream of your photos that show what your world looks like. Then discuss your photo montage project and include a link to your Youth Voices post.

Photo Montage: Inside Judge

posted Mar 18, 2014, 6:01 AM by Chris Sloan   [ updated Apr 9, 2014, 7:50 AM ]

Take 50 photos of the place of your choice at school. Bring cameras on Thursday, 3/20, and Friday, 3/21, for the photo montage assignment. You will create something like David Hocking's photo montages. In the next couple of weeks we'll share our photos with photography students who are doing the same project at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in New York City and The College of Our Lady of Lourdes in Montiero, Brazil.
  1. Take a photo of the entire scene first
  2. Stand in one spot and take 50 photos
  3. Consider what to do with any people who might be in the image

Put together a video where you describe your DIY photo gear project so that someone else might create a similar product.  Your video should include:
  1. an introduction to what you tried to make
  2. where you got your idea (specifically citing the person and URL)
  3. any modifications to the original idea
  4. footage of you using the gear
  5. footage taken that demonstrates what your gear does (this may include some contrasting images of what things would look like without your product) 
  6. a photo of your finished product
  7. a list of the parts you used (which may be different than the video you used as your guide)
