Photographs are an integral part of documenting children’s experiences and communicating with the families in our programs, within any type of education philosophy. Photographs will record our observations more accurately and improve our program’s newsletters. Well-taken photographs can accurately communicate children’s ideas and experiences through the progress of their projects or learning activities while at play. Improving photography skills will also improve the clarity of this communication process. During this interactive workshop, participants will learn the basics of using a camera, photographic composition, take some photographs and critique them to improve.
• Define the basics of using a camera.
• Explore basic photographic composition.
• Understand how to prepare images for display.
• Practice by taking a few photographs for critique.
