On Wednesday, Cohort A got the chance to sign up for a fun new club, the Photography Club! Our first activity was a photography scavenger hunt. The kids each chose a partner and got to use a device (either a phone or digital camera) to find and take photos of each of the items on the list. They were all very enthusiastic to find each one.
These two photos are "take a picture of someone else taking a picture" and as you can tell they're already pros, just look at that photographic composition.
One child who is very tech-savvy even started to edit the pictures that he took on his phone, and took a whole bunch of videos as if he were one of his favorite youtubers! Another child was struggling with how to take a picture of someone running and jumping, so we did some experimenting with timing and shutter speeds.
After some trial and error we figured out how to time the shutter just right to capture these photos!
Each group successfully completed the scavenger hunt and had a great time doing so. Two of the kids even continued taking photos of whatever sparked their interest after they were done. One child said to me "I hope my phone doesn't die in the cold, I want to be photographer for the rest of the day!" Being a photographer myself, that made me very happy to hear. I'm excited to see what their creative minds will bring to the table next week!
