Using colour

Ask pupils to take close up images using just one colour - place them together as a collage - would make a wonderful display - a rainbow of colours.
#photographyintheclassroom lots of ideas in my book which is almost finished!!

Street Photography

I love street photography when you can see lots of people and buildings as well as clues to where the photograph was taken. I often use these as discussion starters.

Images as starters

This is an abstract image of a bird in captivity - it could be used at face value but could also be a symbol for any form of feeling trapped - can be used as a literacy or P4C starter. It is one of my images so feel free to use it in your classrooms if you wish.

Tiny Planets

I thought I would try and share some photography based resources on a more regular basis!
Today is a quick win, it's an app called 'Tiny planets' (currently 69p) and does exactly what it says - it turns your image into a tiny planet with just a couple of clicks (takes ages on Photoshop!).

The original photo is below.

Chinese New Year

We came across the Chinese New Year celebrations and dance in Sheffield this morning. Lots of smiles despite the cold!
