Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
here is a list of thngs you'll need.
1. a camera. duhhh! any camera will do.
2. a nature scene worth a photo.
3. a fair amount of sun. without it taking the pictures will be harder.
4 an edit program on your computer, for minor and major fixes.
5. a tripod or a stable platform if you can get one.
Step 2: Camera Settings.
if you have a camera that anyone can buy, then kudos to you. you don't need a big expensive camera good photos are taken by any camer.the three cameras used in these pictures are cheap compared to big cameras. you can go to BestBuy, Walmart or any such store and get a camera. if your camera has a little dial for settings it's best to leave it on the auto setting, messing with the other settings is fustrating and if you take a picture with the wrong settting the photo is ruined. also no flash, it unnaturely lights the photo there a reason you have an edit program to fix this kind of thing.
Step 3: Places to Take Your Photos
there are three catagories of places to take photo
1. uninhabited areas such as forests or small creeks or other such areas.=1
2.inhabited areas such as your backyard or a nature trail=2
3. unlit areas=3 unfocused=3 deadthings=3 deadthings are not good subjects.
Step 4: Subject.
every picture has a subject it may be a person an animal a flower or anything.
one good choice for nature is a fallen log, or other such object.
try not to focus on the subject use it as a foreground and try to focus on both the foreground and the background.
Step 5: Editing.
the final moment when your pushing the button on your camera then it's over.
now that you have taken the photo theres only one more thing to do... edit!
i use picasa 3 it is a great editing program. you can fix lighting shadowing. and you can even make it black and white and there you have if you follow these steps nature will be forever saved on your computer unless you print.
thank you. enjoy.
