Nicholas is a new student in the seventh period class.
Today we were working on portraits. He asked to take my picture.
This might be his third week in class. He used an SX 170 Kodak Point and Shoot camera and some soft lights. I think the soft focus is perfect for me at this point of my life.
Not only did he catch the light in the eyes, even with my glasses on, there is no reflection on the lenses. Nice!
I also like that he got my hands with the camera.
How often are you pleased with your own image?
We were testing out the new photo backdrop the kids constructed last Friday. They put it together like a puzzle. (Thanks Connie, Anthony and Madison) We use the old darkroom in the back of the classroom as without the proper ventilation for the chemicals, we had to go digital.
The students used the PVC pipe I bought and Mr. U, the carpentry teacher, helped cut it to the right dimensions.
If you need a photo backdrop, click this link for the $20 DIY plan from Dandelions on the Wall. Actually the total was closer to $40 but it works great!
