For our project this term, we got to pick a category that¬†we are passionate about. I picked photography and I can’t wait to share it with you ūüėÄ I’m going to¬†enjoy teaching my classmates about the history and facts about photography ūüôā

I’m also going to play a game with them. It is like scavenger hunt and¬†here is how you play- Everyone get into pairs and get an Ipad to take pictures.¬†They will¬†take pictures¬†of different¬†categories. They can¬†pick categories like: most unusual picture, most detailed, best close up and so much more ūüėČ

Here are some facts I learnt about photography

  • Joseph Nic√©phore Ni√©pce ¬†took the first photograph in¬†1827.
  • The First Photograph was lost for almost 50 years before historians rediscovered it.
  • Today, Ni√©pce is best known as an inventor of photography. During his life though, his most successful invention was an engine that propelled boats on water
  • The First Photograph is one-of-a-kind. There are no other copies of it anywhere in the world.
