Castillon primary school- Exploring their village with a camera

First, the children had an initiation in the classroom where they learnt about the basic rules of photography and how to use the camera. They then explored their village through the lens, trying to apply the basic rules of composition and identify the visual concepts that could be found around them (textures, geometry, colors, patterns, light, abstraction). Back in the classroom, they learnt to identify the best photos for an exhibition and a calendar, and classified them according to themes to make a photo-collage. They organised a game with the local inhabitants where those had to find the various places in the village from details featured in the photographs.
