Take a Look Around: Photography Activities for Young PeopleUser Review - Book Verdict
Gr 4-8-Suggestions for photography projects are perfectly illustrated with black-and-white pictures taken by children at a summer camp. The book gets high marks for its clear how-to instructions, for its creative concepts, and for its simple glossary. Look to other titles to learn about the parts of a camera or darkroom techniques and the mechanics of photography. This is one that encourages self-expression. Novice photographers are given tips on how to use shadow and light, camera angles, composition, mood, and scale, needing only inexpensive "point and shoot" cameras and to just look around for ideas. Sample projects include photographing the same object from various angles, taking a series of photos of something being built, or shooting a moving object. Varriale makes photography fun, while adding a level of surprising sophistication.-Jennifer J. Gallant, Cleveland Public Library, OH ...
