young photographers #1: action poses…

DSCN0359i took this shot of Bhavani Prasad, but all the images in the slide show were taken by my students.

Admittedly it’s not always easy to manage a class of extremely excited children who have been given a camera for the first time. However I wanted all age groups I taught to have the opportunity to take photography lessons so this year i brought three extra “kid proof” cameras with me. A lot can be learned through photography; composition, how light works, movement and how it affects a photograph, team work, cooperation, patience and perseverance…

I also think that the responsibility and trust that comes with handing over a piece of equipment to manage and use themselves proved to be a valuable lesson and also a boost to their self esteem.

Will post plenty more as so many great photos were taken
