3.30 – 3.50pm: Photography with Shaan
We built upon perspective – learnt at the last lesson. We focussed on learning how to do the following:
- Holding the camera steady, focussing.
- How to keep it straight so as not to get a weird angle
- Different types of backgrounds and their effects – busy backgrounds v solid coloured backgrounds
We used the diyas they had painted last class, they created patterns with these on different backgrounds, and they photographed these.
I noticed quite a few children were having to share my camera. These days you get fairly reasonably priced digital cameras – or if you have an old one – do send it with your child in a case. We will be doing photography every other week this term.
