Sell Me Some Fruit

Sell Me Some Fruit

About 20 minutes before class today, I completely nixed my lesson plan and decided to introduce a contest to the kids to spice up the day. Taking inspiration from one of my favorite shows, Project Runway, I told the students that they would be given a piece of fake fruit and it was their job to sell that fruit to me, through a photograph. Yesterday, we started our still life unit by photographing three still life stations, so they already knew about still lifes and how to photograph them. Today, they had to come up with two concepts for their photographs and then execute them. I set up three backdrops, three lights and different props for them to use. They had all of class to photograph and edit and at the beginning of class tomorrow, we will vote on the best and the winner will get candy!
