Create A Monochromatic Digital Photography Project

In this week’s NEU To Do for Kids project, young photographers will use a digital camera or a smart device to capture and edit monochromatic photographs. Students will practice using light and shadows while also exploring techniques such as photo composition, perspective, and framing to create a portfolio of nature images inspired by the work of Ansel Adams.
