- “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
— Ansel Adams
On March 22 and 23, third, fourth, and fifth grade students at Willow Springs Elementary School participated in a photography workshop. Students had the opportunity to take their own photos using digital photography (iPads). Students explored photography techniques such as rule of thirds, framing their photo, zooming in and zooming out, and most importantly -- listening to their muse. Check out the student galleries organized by class name. Great work Willow Springs students. A picture is worth a thousand words!
We began each workshop inviting students to think about how photography has evolved. Students selected the oldest camera and the newest camera. Students were fascinated with film cameras and looking at cameras from different eras. I told the students that the black polaroid camera was my parents' camera and it took photographs from childhood when I was their age.

If you don't see your photos with your class, it is most likely in the slideshow below. There were several iPads that were disabled to share to DropBox.
