Students as teachers, part one

Photo by Ben Harvey
As we near the end of the school year, my upper level students will take on more of the teaching load. For example my advanced photo students are going to produce videos that profile their expertise. I've been planning the activity for a while, but when Ben (a student in the class) showed us the recent video he shot while he was photographing his water blur series, it became clear that the many talented photographers I work with every day need to become mentors.

Some of the things they'll teach:
Sports action - Alex, Jeannie
Tyler - how to light and shoot studio portraits
Sylvia - environmental portraits
Ben - long exposure
Photo apps - (Abby & Zoe)
Christina - wildlife
Josh - perspective
Pets - RachelShea
Danny - landscape
Kyra - gourmet macros
