Photojournal // Digital Photography Lesson

Medium: Adobe Photoshop
Time: Ongoing project [Weekly Journal entry submission]
Grade: 9-12 
Objective: Explore Journalism as an art form. Create a photojournal over the course of 60+ days
Materials: Digital camera, Magazine, Notebook, Paper, Printer

Inspired by a photo-journal project my college professor required us to complete over the course of the semester I had students create a photo-journal entry each week. The ongoing lesson encourages students to keep their cameras handy at all times.. :)

Tip: An alternative to using point and shoot cameras is to allow students to use camera phones. I pitched the journal project as a "spontaneous" look into the life of a Teenager.


* All photographs & journals produced by the following students grade 9-12: [see above & below] [Meghan M.]  [Erika.]  [Leslie Z.] [James K] [Hanah V] [Ashley B] [Mark G]

I gave the kids creative design freedom for each page but required a consistent these per week.  Pages ranged from simplistic to collaged. It was interesting to see how the journals progressed throughout the semester.
