Environmental awareness has been an interest of mine for quite a while and over the summer I remembered some of the photography activities I did back in college.
A really old blog post detailing my work as a student can be found here.
With this in mind and the launch of the Everyone Can Create curriculum I decided it was time to integrate this into my classroom. I used this activity to highlight the city we live in whilst also using it as an introduction to photo editing with Snapseed App.
First off I sent students on a mission to use their cameras to capture some photos from around the city and college. I didn’t specify types of photos or whether they should capture positive or negative pictures. This was one of their first experiences using the iPad camera so I was interested in what they would come back with.
Once they had their selection of photos I introduced them to some key features in Snapseed (filters, cropping, adding text) before allowing them some time to explore and create their own photos. Below are some of the results.
