In preparation for our field work at Revolution Foods next week, friends in the Thursday art groups continued to photograph with digital cameras. We began the day by discussing what we might see at Revolution Foods…
Georgi: Machines and people.
Wallace: People that bring our food.
Michael: Chefs that have to cook for the judges.
Chris: Food and mint and salad. Maybe a giant robot making food.
Owen: Ovens… fish… I don’t like the fish from there, though.
Darian: Maybe… yes… people!
Next, I shared with friends that they had a big job to do next week because I need their help as document photographers on the trip! All groups thought that they would see people at Revolution Foods and we began discussing how to ask peers if they were okay with having their picture taken.
Wallace: Excuse me, can I take your picture? They may say yes or no or maybe.
Michael: May I please take a picture of you… please?
Jasper: If they say no, don’t take it.
Michael: And if you do, you might get a ticket from the police.
Sarah: You can tell them that they look gorgeous.
Gabby: You can say thank you!
A big job like this comes with big responsibilities! Friends decided that they must always walk while holding cameras and that they should wear the strap to the camera around their wrist. We decided that when I say “wrist check,” friends would hold up their cameras and we make sure they are all safe and secure.
Jasper: Keep it on your wrist so it’s safe and doesn’t fall.
Michael: They are really expensive… like infinity dollars.
Next, children asked their friends in the Studio if they could take their photograph.
Once we practiced in the Studio, we decided to take a walk around the school to see if there was anyone that we could ask to photograph. Children became incredibly excited whenever they saw a teacher or another student in the hallway. Here are some of their photographs from our adventure!
Many thanks to everyone for being so open to us photographing them today! Friends really loved it and it was great practice for our fieldwork next week. Here are some of my photos from my perspective today…
