Through the Camera's Lens

As mentioned in a previous post, I'm teaching a beginner photography class to our 6th-8th graders in our homeschool co-op. Their first assignment was to photograph everyday life in their families.  The children were instructed to take lots of photos, to move around their subject, to get in close, and to get in focus; fairly simple instructions for a first photo assignment.  I have to say I was quite pleased with the results.  It was truly enjoyable to see life through their lenses and they all snapped some wonderful photos.  OJ and Stat Boy are both in my class and I think they actually got something out of the assignment.

OJ snapped a shot of Special K playing with her favorite doll of the day.  It looks like Elizabeth is whispering in Special K's ear.
Stat Boy took this awesome photo of Baby Wingnut slam dunking the basketball.  I love the angle on this shot, and we haven't even talked about interesting points of view yet!
