Bugs and Bubbles was the theme at last week’s after school photography club. Our students loved the challenge of finding different insects in their school yard and trying to capture bubbles drifting in the wind. Kids practiced photographing insects using Macro setting on their cameras, and locking the focus by half pressing the shutter button. Here are a few examples of bugs which some of our sharp shooters captured on the day!

To photograph bubbles successfully, we switched our camera setting to continuous shooting which allowed us to keep up with the action and photograph bubbles as they moved. Our sharp shooters were also encouraged to try different perspectives – to photograph bubbles from the top, bottom, side and against different backgrounds.
