How to Use This Course
Weekly photography challenges continue to build on the skills learned in Photography by expanding students’ skills and stretching their creativity. If a student already has a solid understanding of photography, the challenges may be done independently of the Photography class.
I’d like to invite you to join me in a new Weekly Photography Challenge! Your computer is about to get filled up with some amazingly creative and fun photos. And along the way, you will grow as a photographer, get to know your camera better, and increase your creativity levels!
The idea behind these challenges is simple. Take a picture (or a few!) each week that corresponds to the challenge. You can start any time, and do more or less depending on your schedule. Sometimes we get stuck taking the same pictures over and over, or we take them from the same perspective. These challenges will get you thinking outside of the box and give you some creative springboards to capture your best shots yet!
Whether you are new to photography, or have been the family photographer for years, these challenges are for you. You can decide how to complete them, and perhaps they will give you other ideas for doing your own challenges. These challenges will not necessarily teach you how to take a picture or how to use your camera, though there will be some tips along the way. If you help with learning photography or how to use your camera, my photography class on SchoolhouseTeachers.com would be a great starting point.
I won’t be telling you how to take your pictures, what lens length to use, or what settings on your camera to use. That will be up to you, and that is what makes this a “challenge”! Check back in a couple of days for a reminder and some helpful tips to encourage you along the way. Then, every week, come back for your new challenge word.
Are you ready for some fun?
