This camera, lens and printer will allow these students to work independently on projects and learn how to use the gear first-hand. Hands-on learning is so important in photography, especially because so many kids have a naturally good photography eye. My students will have an end-of-year project called "A Day in the Life of Me." I want these kids to show how they live every day, the good and the bad. I want them to use the style of a photojournalist to show what their lives are like. We will be working on these throughout the semester, and they will be expected to use light sources and editing to make the images look how they feel. I believe these kids can really shine in this project. These kids may not have all the resources they need otherwise, but I want to give them an opportunity they haven't had before to really show what they've got. If they have the resources to do it, they can do anything.
