Using an ants point of view to make creative compositions

Creative compositions were our focus this week at after school photography club. We encouraged the children to think outside the box when it came to composing their images. How did we do this? We asked the students to pretend their camera was an ant! By doing this is forces a different perspective. If your camera was an ant, what would it see? It would be crawling up walls, through long grass, into small gaps, seeing the world from a tiny point of view! We showed our students photographs by famous photographer Chris Steele-PerkinsMicha Bar-Am & Elliott Erwitt for inspiration.

As always our students excelled at this theme and took some brilliant photographs. Here are a few of their best shots:
