    Primary School Photography Workshop

    Just have to share this with you...

    I've been running a photography workshop for 22 primary school students from years 5,6 & 7 over the past 3 months. You may recall my plea for help here to find black & white disposable cameras for my students. I tracked 22 cameras down and the students have all been so keen and dedicated throughout the entire workshop!

    I have chosen one (the best) negative from each student and have been busy printing them over the past 2 weeks for an exhibition of their work. I am so excited, because their work is absolutely fantastic! I'm so proud of my young students! They have produced such innovative and excellent photography and I can't wait to see it on display!

    Just had to share my quiet leaps of joy...

    This is fantastic. They have the patience to forgo digital's instant gratification?

    This sounds like a great project. I wish there was something like this in my area that I could volunteer for.

    BTW, nice to see you here, Nicole. You've been missed.

    Hey, Nicole, long time no hear. That's great news about your students. I, too, would love to see what they have done under your tutelage.
    Thank you.

    It's a wonderful idea, the sort project that has so many rewards for the teacher and the children, with people like you around Nicole, film photography will never die.

    Chris, I'll give an introduction to some of the images once the Opening Night is over, which is this Wed, 28th Oct.
    Mike, isn't that just fantastic. It can be done, all we need to do is give young students an opportunity, rather than take the quick'n'easy road.
    Dan, hey there, great to see you again, too.
    Chris, thank you, same to you. Will post later in the week.
    Matt, I'm so not cool... just a happy little dinosaur. Good to see you again.
    Ben, thank you. If we can inspire young minds, the future always looks a little brighter. Nice to hear from you.

    Reminds me a little of many years ago when I would go to the local elementary school and show them how to make photograms using printing-out paper. I showed them how to make masks and use things like dried grasses and found objects to make shadow images. It was so much fun seeing the kids' reactions as they took their creations out into the sun and watched them develop before their eyes, then brought them indoors to fix them in a big tub. They made oatmeal carton/shoebox cameras next and did some pinhole photography using POP. It was out of pocket and worth every cent.

    I'm sure they'll pick up on your delight and enthusiasm for their work.
