Since I love reading and anything that involves books, I thought this would be a project I could get excited about. I did this in place of a traditional landscape assignment–something I felt was a little tired. Their work didn’t disappoint. I was so happy with the results.
This project was one of our more involved projects of the year and served as their final. Every student chose a book that they either wanted to read or have read recently. I had them find 5 descriptive quotes to base their pictures around. I taught them a little about “movie editing” and how color can affect the overall mood. Since this is the end of the year, the students had a good understanding of composition and camera controls.
