Where do aspiring photographers start?

I was asked to provide a teaching lesson on photography for elementary students via remote learning.

My presentation addresses the question how to take great pictures. It has since continued to grow in scope. The biggest thought was where to start?

Basically ideas kept flowing as I continued to expand this initial half hour session for remote learners.

I thought I’d share some of these ideas with my audience.

The first part which is the entire first lesson breaks down the idea of using compositional guidelines to trains the eye to frame the images in the rectangular viewfinder or LCD.

Using only my original photographs from my collection, I illustrate each concept of composition along with various creative ideas. I’ve kept it simple for the targeted audience.

When each student is potentially using a different type of camera or smart phone, the technical aspects are left out while focusing on making great images.

More to come on this….
