High School: Macro Photography
Before students jump into the world of photoshop and photography, I have my students take a day to go outside and explore their cameras. The fist setting that I introduce them to is the macro setting. Another word for macro is close-up. Students were required to take a variety of macro shots. They then used these photos to help them learn some of the basic skills in photoshop. Students had to work with adjusting the levels to work with contrast, changing a photo to black and white, cropping a photo, and also taking a photograph, selecting one area of it and making part of it color and the other part black and white. Here are a few examples of what the students were able to do this trimester.
