BRIGHTON BEACH PHOTOGRAPHIC TREASURE HUNT
Make 1 image for each of these 10 clues.
Remember, Be Creative – you all have your own ways of seeing the world so try to be individual in how you photograph too.
Feel free to work in pairs or small groups but remember that this treasure hunt will ensure you all come out with your own series of images so try to be support each other to be as individual as possible.
- Framing – Think about what you want to be in the picture and what you don’t – in particular the background and foreground.
- Focus – Make sure that you press the shoot button half – way in first so the
camera has time to focus. Hold the camera with two hands to keep it steady.
- Lighting – think about how lighting changes the ‘feel’ of an image. Try to photograph without using flash but if you’re worried about whether there isn’t enough natural light – take one with flash and one without.
- Content – Make sure you think creatively about what you’re trying to say in
your image and what might help you to express this.
- Composition – Think about how you build your image – this
brings together the framing, lighting and content.
