My 8 year old daughter is interested in photography. She has a great eye for details and enjoys the time when she can use “MY” camera for projects.
For this digital photography challenge for kids, I asked her to capture images on the camera to represent ZERO.
“Ummm, that’s impossible. How can you photograph zero?”
I just smiled, shrugged my shoulders, and handed her the camera.
The Zero Digital Photography Challenge:
Here are some of her digital photography shots for the zero photography challenge.
There are zero seedlings sprouted in this pan.
There are zero puzzle pieces on the board.
There are zero pencils ready to write in my journal.
There are zero letters in the mailbox.
Extending the Zero Digital Photography Challenge:
Our next project is learning how to put the photos together for a photo book using Shutterfly!
I helped her to upload her favorite photos on the site and selected an easy to work with page layout.
One picture and one sentence.
This will then add some vocabulary and writing to the technology activity. After she is done, we will go back and edit the sentences for grammar and strengthen the vocabulary.
Here is how the book looks in the first stages in Shutterfly editor:
They have customizable photo book options . Shutterfly is my family’s go-to site for making photo books, holiday cards, and pictures. If you sign up for their e-mails, they will send AMAZING coupons too!
