Photo Time Capsule

Project Published 7/29/15 Last updated on 2/28/20
1. Students are to plan and create a photo time capsule that depicts who they are today
2. They are to initially create a list of possible images that represent them from all areas of their lives, e.g. family, friends, hobbies, sport, school etc.
3. Using previously learnt photography skills such as using manual settings in various environments and taking into consideration all the main Composition elements students then take all required photos
4. Students are then to use Adobe Photoshop to enhance the images and manipulate if need be
5. Adobe Voice can be used as a narration tool to talk about the photos
6. Adobe Slate can be used to create a website based on their Time Capsule or alternatively they could create a slideshow using Adobe Photoshop/Acrobat.

A great and creative idea when students are studying the historical context of a specific time.
