Horizon Honors Secondary School Digital Art students are currently studying photography!
They are working in groups to create lightboxes to prepare for their projects on product photography. Their first challenge is to analyze the instructions and the many tasks required to create these boxes.Through discussion, students identify their individual strengths and assign roles. When they are ready, they gather their supplies and they're off!
They will use these boxes to study and manipulate light, angle, and form to best photograph the products they bring in.
