Action Plan

A camera and hiking gear

Pre-Departure Preparation

I plan to focus on landscape photography, demonstrating the rule of thirds. (The rule of thirds describes a basic compositional structure of a photograph. Taking any image, you can split it into 9 segments by using 3 vertical and 3 horizontal lines. ... The rule indicates that you should place key elements of your scene at one or more of these areas in a photo.) I plan to take photos that do and don’t demonstrate how to use the rule of thirds so students can see the difference. Afterwards, they will take their own photos demonstrating the rule of thirds.

Preparation During Travel

I will research the best places and angles to take photos from.
