How are all cameras alike? Why do some photographs intrigue us more than others? In this interdisciplinary pair of programs, students are introduced to the science and art behind this extremely popular form of visual communication. Accompanying materials include in-program activity guides as well as teaching extensions for getting students launched on their own photographic projects.
These programs may be scheduled individually.
In Part Two: What Makes a Good Photograph? students explore what makes an interesting photograph by viewing the works of contemporary and historical photographers in the museum's collection. Using an activity sheet to discover how focus, framing, timing, point of view, and subject matter can influence meaning in a photograph, students lay the foundation for their own creative view through the camera.
