DA#35 – The Mysterious Friend

How can photography convey different messages?

This workshop provides an introduction to photography and to the concepts of point of view and framing. The children shall start by observing the photos in class and at home, then they will be given opportunities to learn how to take photos on their own. They will practice portrayal by taking pictures of their classmates, from an overall portrait to a single small detail, before visually preparing a psychomotricity exercise to be carried out in class.
