Photo Friday: Shoes

The first theme I gave my students for Photo Friday was shoes!  I saw some really awesome photos from Jefferson West High School and thought shoes were a great idea! I knew all of my students had them and would be able to show their personalities within the theme.
We went through this slides presentation to get started:
For the first part of the assignment, the students created "product photos" of their shoes. We talked about the difference in purpose with product photos vs. expressive photos. We used the photo box I got through our Photo Friday Donors Choose project to take those photos before moving outside to work on the expressive photos.
Here is a link to the light box we use. If you purchase with this link I may get a small commission at no extra cost to you.

One of my examples
Students were encouraged to edit their photos with the Snapseed app- it is free and has a lot of different options for editing and enhancing the mood you are aiming for.

What simple themes do you like to give your students for photography?
