Snowman Snapshots: using point-of-view

Third graders discussed using point-of-view as an artist and how to create a composition using a viewfinder.  Photographers are artists who create visual compostions all the time, using their cameras to zoom in or out for just the right angle.

nice details

a different layout

like the one melting in the sun

    2. I didn't save that display and am having trouble reading it too, but I know it says something along the lines of "photographers choose what to include and what to leave out of their photo compositions - they can zoom in or out to create the right emphasis. Each drawing shows a different point-of-view"
