I'm really not much of a photographer myself, but I didn't let that get in the way of me teaching a photography class

Here is a bunch of pics from some of my 7th graders:

I like those. Kids have an eye for pictures that leaves inhibition behind. They see it, they shoot it, and it usually works.

I passed out 12 Fuji disposable 35mm. cameras to kids that we took on a trip to see the California Redwoods and Sequoias. WalMart cut me a deal on the cameras and film processing too.

The pics from those cameras were a mix of mediocre to completely astounding. About 35 of their pictures were selected by the kids (6th. graders) and entered into a statewide school's photo competition and we won 1st. and 2nd. place.

We (me) bought several blowups and hung them around the school too.

Thanks neil.

And that's awesome, I need to sync my lessons up with some of the field trips more.  Our school has a bunch of digital cameras that I was able to check out for the class to use...canons, don't remember the model but nothing to fancy. This is the first year I've had middleschoolers so it was kind of all new ground to me.I assigned them to start with a minimum of 50 shots and then choose the 10 they liked best to present to the class. They had two assignments one was to take photos themed around shadows and reflections and the second was to come up with their own themed series of photos. It was a great way to teach visual arts concepts to a group with a very diverse range of technical and drafting skills.

Thanks Neil

Sounds like some fun projects, especially for middle schoolers!  Now that I think about it, I did a project like that when I was in high school.

Really nice bird photos, neil (cars pretty sweet too). I'll occaisionally see red tail hawks around my neihborhood but never when I have a camera on me. I once saw one fighting, or at least being severely harassed by, about four crows in the parking lot of my work. They were pulling some crazy aerial stunts. My dad got some great pictures of a red tail peering in his kitchen window.

@ kyle:

I like how you got a theme going, reminds of abstract paintings. The first one is particularly good.

This guy (Baby Praying Mantis) was on the ball next to my weight machine today. I started looking around and there's 30 to 40 of them on my deck. They're about 3/4 of an inch long now.

Wow some nice photography! Mine was all super amateur but it's been a lot of fun.

Very nice PFeenstra and Manduh. I unfortunately don't get out in nature enough and only usually get to take photos of my daughter so I don't have anything to even compare with the stuff you guys and Realneil have to offer. Thanks for sharing

@realneil Oh I understand that I personally just don't like to put pictures of my daughter up on the internet. But I found some older photos from a few years ago that are pretty nice. These are from a rowing competition in Massachusetts enjoy.

Thanks I will be sure to pass the message on to the wifey. I was really impressed with it as she has not training and came up with the design all on her own.

What lighthouse is that it looks very old but well kept.

It was a Bird Aviary at a Virginia State Park by the coast. (no Cats allowed)

Some of those birds looked big enough to eat a cat.
