The Photo Shoot: Do You See Me?



In this part of the lesson, students plan their cinemagraph. It is important for students to communicate with their team mate and find out about their partner's likes, dislikes, dreams, fantasies, etc. Once they talk with their partner, they can begin to plan the location of the photo shoot, the props they plan to use and the one aspect of cinemagraph that will move.

Students will need cameras to take a few seconds of video.

By getting into teams of two (2) or a group of (3), students plan their photo shoot. Students are expected to capture enough useable stills and video to move into Photoshop to start the editing process.

At the end of these activities, students should know more about their partner and shoot enough footage and stills to start to build their cinemagraph.
