Goal

My goal is to provide my students with DSLR cameras to increase their knowledge of technology and taking photos for their Creative Photography class.  

 

What will be done with my students

If we had DSLR cameras, I could teach them the proper way of using a camera with different settings to get different results. Currently all of my students have to bring their own devices such as a camera phone or their own point and shoot cameras. I can't effectively teach the proper techniques used for certain objectives in photography without students having the same technology to use. They would learn about the different settings of the camera and throughout our curriculum they would become skilled at using the manual settings to get the desired effects.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students would learn how to use real world technology employed in the profession of being a photographer. Students would be able to sign out this technology to use at home with their families as subjects for their photos. Hopefully this would provide a chance for parents to get more involved in their child's schoolwork.  

 

Describe the Students

We have a wide range of students at our school. My Creative Photography classes are for beginners to the field of photography. Every once in a while I get a student who regularly uses DSLR cameras at home, but the majority have never touched a real camera because of the invention of the cell phone. I get students in all grade levels of all economic and cultural backgrounds.  

 

Budget Narrative

I will use the $2,399.96 to purchase 4 DSLR cameras. A DSLR camera bag is included with purchase for safe storage and transport of the camera. I would also need a higher GB memory card for each camera because of the size of the photos taken.
