Ms. Magyarosi-Laytner from Detroit MI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students upgraded studio equipment - C-Stands, background stands, and sandbags!
My students made the choice to come to an art and design school to get more exposure to different types of art. We're continuing this year with our new curriculum focused on different types of media. I am the high school photography teacher and we do amazing things! My Photography 1, 2, and AP students make work using a range of themes and techniques including documentary, fashion, studio, alternative process, thematic storytelling, advertising, and more.
My students are wonderful and sassy, completely in love with any type of artwork that expresses their own personal voice and experiences.
My students are continuously getting more skilled at photography as we move forward throughout the year, but we need a few upgrades to help us move forward in skill level. The background stands purchased a few years ago need to be upgraded to a more heavy duty version - I have been putting things back together a little at a time, but they are getting rickety because the kids are using them often. We also need sandbags for stability in the studio - students have been holding every stand that we have, but as we setup our shoots with complexity, we have more chances for knocking into and breaking one of our tools. Sandbags will help with our piece of mind.
C-Stands are so important to studio photographers, but we don't have any available in our class.
My students don't even realize what they're missing! They can be used to hold and adjust lights, modifier cards, and more. The best part about them is that they can be adjusted for any angle, unlike our current stands that only hold the lights one way.
I really want them to have the ability to control their lighting and be prepared for the potential of working on an actual set. Each step that we take towards having professional tools help my students see themselves as photographers for their careers.
