Photo Assignments

A LONG list of photo assignments designed for high school aged students.

Taking pictures every week is important in a photography class...obviously... 

Anyway, in this unit, students will learn to take pictures with a variety of techniques and themes. 

NOTE: each lesson plan will have an accompanying blog post for students to read here: I'll be adding a new article every week throughout the fall semester of 2017.
