Lomography Effects in Photoshop

Posted on Jun 4, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Jun 4, 2014

I have been using Lomo cameras and Lomo App based photography with my students for over 10 years now, and they love the look of the images. One thing that has been missing is an easy way to create the Lomo look from traditional digital images using Photoshop. Here is a link, discovered by one of my Year 10 students that contains a number of tutorials. Not all links may work, but i've checked a number and they are good. Note the complexity rating with each one, this might help in selecting where to start. If you don't know much about Lomography, look at the first one which is a great introduction.

Me Project - a visual compilation of who I am!

Posted on May 23, 2014 by Dena Wilson Last Activity on Jun 17, 2014

Nine revealing pieces compiled in a poster grid  where the student/designer visually reveals what they want another to know about them. A great project for an entire grading period. Each piece can be for a grade and then one for the whole. Students can present their projects to whole class which allows for them to get to know each other better. Requires research into things like professions or heritage. Uses photography and photo manipulation. Great end of school project when skills are developed and attention spans are short - focusing on themselves is priceless!

Photographic Composition Checklist

Posted on May 8, 2014 by Colin Byers Last Activity on Jun 2, 2014

Learning to take good compositions takes time and practice. However, it doesn't hurt to have a guide to follow. This video assists novice photography students with some of the most basic elements of composition. Although the tutorial does not talk about specific software. One should keep in mind that almost all photographs are edited, and that editing is a means to improve compositions further. So, whether you use Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, or Lightroom to organize and edit your photos; you will first need good compositions to work with.

Spoken Word : A COMPLETE HOW-TO GUIDE & LESSONS FOR CREATING SPOKEN WORD MULTIMEDIA

Posted on Apr 29, 2014 by katherine Yamashita Last Activity on Jul 8, 2014

This unit guides students through all the steps needed to create a multi-media spoken word piece. It is designed for use in the Digital Media, Media Arts, English Media or Communications Technology classroom. It can also be used in any media literacy unit or unit on social justice.  This is the teacher information page for this unit. Access to the Internet and student access to millions of pieces of content means students are more than ever tempted to break copyright. I structured this unit to encourage students to create all of their own content, however I do allow the use of public domain and creative commons content. There is a great series of resources for teachers about teaching with digital media, copyright, social issues and youth advocacy in the Adobe Youth Voices page: Adobe Youth Voices Essentials. Another site with excellent resources related to this unit can be found on the Takin... Read More

Traditional Myths: Are They Still Relevant?

Posted on Apr 28, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 28, 2014

This project was based on work that I did with my upper-secondary English students in Papua New Guinea. The idea concerns the transition from traditional values held over a long period of time, to a modern world where many of the "old ways" are being lost in the race toward development and renewed self-identification. While the context for this project is Papua New Guinea as a developing country, the basic ideas in the traditional-to-modern framework could be adapted to a variety of contexts. Examples might include religion, how we entertain ourselves, free time, etc. The basic ideas of what cultures "value" may change drastically over generations. It is also useful to focus on where these values come from, and how they may have been compromised, adapted or replaced, to meet changes in society.

deviantART

Posted on Apr 27, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 27, 2014

http://edex.adobe.com/resource/3f-d026d/ I found this link to deviantART and the website is http://www.deviantart.com/ Their logo is "Where ART Meets Application" I do not use this site much, although my students try to encourage me to share my photos on it. For classroom work, it is a great resource because students can see and critique each others' work. In English class, it provides an opportunity to engage in speaking and general communication activities. Many of the students already are very good at post-processing their images, and creating real art from a simple photograph. I envy them for their abilities.

Multiplicity Portrait

Posted on Apr 10, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Jul 13, 2014

This task allows you to put yourself (or another person) in the same image a number of times. The concept was used by Australian photographer Michael Cook to create his series "Majority Rules". It's a lot of fun and is limited only by your imagination. I use it with my Year 9 students and the results are usually amazing.

This is an inspirational web resource, where resources can be shared, explored and viewed. In addition it is an interactive computer / art community. I often refer my students to it, and have had many students over the years who have uploaded their work, and we have entered competitions as class groups.
