Seventh Grade Digital Photo Assignment

Students will work in teams to take pictures according to the objectives assigned.  We will be using the rule of thirds to compose our photos.  Not everyone will understand these objectives in the beginning.  Be patient with each other and help your partner to work out the assignment.  Each group may have a different subject for today’s photo shoot.
