4th Grade Photography
4th graders learned about the art career of Photography. They learned about the many different careers that a photographer could have, from taking school photos, photos of food, animals, families, weddings, houses, famous people and many others. All these types of photographers had to study, practice and learn how to take interesting photos and how to edit them. 4th graders used their iPads to take their own photos outside around school looking for interesting subjects and interesting views. After taking lots of photos they chose their favorites and saved their photos to their Google Drive. To edit their photos they used online photo software called Pixlar Express. Pixlar Express has hundreds of ways to edit photos, they started with basic editing like cropping, changing size and rotating. Then they explored changing colors and many different effects and filters that Pixlar had to offer. When they were done they could print their 2 favorite photos and write an artist statement about their favorite.
Beautiful Photography 4th Grade!
