Teens utilize photography

Taking part in a program named PhotoVoice, students assembled every week for twelve long weeks. There they learned about photography skills, reviewed each others work as well as offering constructive comment on each other’s work. With digital storytelling, the students were boosted to share their views on the topics of underage drinking as well as giving voice to their perspectives.

PhotoVoice, at the Homer Middle School, was integrated into the yearbook class of Rand Seaton. 16 students took part in that, including fourteen year old Sarah Wolf, who told that she learned the importance of making ways that the eye can go after when she is taking a snap. These are known as leading lines, and now she sees them everywhere.

Even though the program theme for the class was underage drinking, program leaders wanted to offer students a scope to show what effects concerned Homer students the most.

When the students were told to use photography to find out a trouble in Homer they would like to change, Sarah propped up a thin and long printer cartridge on ground. The she asked one of her friends to lay next to it; after that shot the picture showing the cartridge as well as her friends arm.

Wolf told that she wanted people to think the cartridge was a syringe. This snap offers an overdose and says the story of Homers drug trouble. Her friend Gregory also learned about digital storytelling. Gregory told that she learned how to see the stories in snaps. Now, when she look for a photograph, she look for the story.
