Benefitting from Understanding Fundamental Principles: Midland School Ninth Graders Build Pinhole Cameras
But the quick and easy assignment skips over some fundamental understandings and history.
They take their homemade cameras into the field to photograph their subjects- followed by processing and responding to their work.
The nature of the project leads to good deal of planning and thought from the students. Their written pieces about their results show flexibility, creativity, and understanding.
The students gain a fundamental and elemental understanding of photography from a practical, hands-on, creative exercise.
