Cups Held Out

After sharing the story “Cups Held Out” with a Stage 3 class we discussed the life of a beggar, in particular the hardships and the circumstances that may have lead to a life of begging. We then revised digital photography techniques:

Camera Angles & Framing

Rule of Thirds

In groups of 2-4, students were given a plastic cup and 50 mins to create an image using their tablet device. The results were amazing. These images will be used in class as a stimulus to research into aid agencies and the best way to support people in need.
