You will be creating a triptych, meaning you will do a series of THREE photographs, one with a beginning, middle and end. They will all relate to each other in some way. Make sure it’s not the same photo with three different angles, move the toys around!
Vary your angles, get closer, get further away, take horizontal then vertical and even tilted photographs.
Have your camera as Aperture Priority- the front right dial changes the aperture.
For each photograph, start with an aperture f/4.8 and then take it again where you change it to f/13.
Make sure I can’t recognize where the toys are set up- I don’t want to see it quickly identified as the table top in the quad. Take 24+ photographs of your toys. Again, make sure that you’ve got different setups, and that you have a variety of apertures (f/4.8 and f/13) since some may look better as deep focus and some might look good as shallow focus.

Upload your three images onto a new padlet of your own (okay if it's more then three photos- up to six) and write a fun children's story that is at least three paragraphs long that relates to your three photographs and upload it onto your padlet.
Each photo should have a title (make one up!) and the description should be the aperture, shutterspeed and ISO information.
PLEASE NOTE that if you use Google Chrome instead of Safari, Padlet is not nearly as slow (you can find Google Chrome under applications). You may also want to type it up in Google docs first and then copy and paste it into your padlet to be sure there is spell check.
You'll be presenting your three photos and your story to the class.
Title of Padlet: First and Last name, Title of Your Story
