  • Cool Iris is a photo search that retrieves results in a cool visual style. You can search multiple image search engines
  • After students choose their mood and style (happy or sad, humorous or serious, black and white or color, nostalgic or contemporary, etc.), the website streams continuous video, still images, and sound. If students see or hear something that they like, they can add it to a Moodboard and find out more information from the Getty Images website.Uses I think of right now involve language arts, social studies, and art inspiration/writing prompts. Students can create a stream and then do projects inspired by the stream (poetry, short stories, reflections, artwork, research, etc).

    1. 1. Images and Imagination<br />Sandi AdamsCherokee County School District<br />
    2. 2. Images and Learning<br />The human brain processes an image 60,000 times faster than text…….<br />No one “tells” your brain where to begin processing a visual image……<br />Images can significantly enhance the “stickiness” of an idea within your brain…<br />Communicating with images is an ancient concept……<br />Given a lack of congruence between visual and verbal information the visual will win out….<br />
    3. 3. Images and Learning<br />Some people remember better what they see rather than what they hear<br />If there is emotion involved, the memory is enhanced even more…<br />Viewers respond to the abstract features of visual composition as unconsciously perceived analogies of their real-world experience.<br />Visual imagery clearly forcefully reinforces the basic message’<br />
    4. 4. Images and Learning<br />Photographic representations often illustrate points that textual media cannot….<br />Students tend to be more visual learners because their world is rich in visual stimuli..<br />‘A picture is a fact’ and ‘a logical picture of facts is a thought’<br />A picture is worth a thousand words…<br />
    5. 5. Taking Better Pictures<br />
    6. 6. MegaPixels and Resolution<br />The greater the mega pixel, the more information can be captured and the more an image can be enlarged.<br />
    7. 7. Optical vs. Digital Zoom<br />Optical zoom lenses physically extend to magnify your subject. A motor controls the lens movement. When you press the switch to "W" or "T," the subject is either magnified or reduced in size .<br />Digital zoom crops your image and magnifies the result of the cropping. To make the cropped area bigger, digital zoom makes up, or interpolates, pixels to add to the image, which may give less than satisfactory results.<br />

    9. 9. Top Ten Photo Tips<br />
    10. 10. Look Your Subject in the Eye<br />Direct eye contact can be as engaging in a picture as it is in real life. When taking a picture of someone, hold the camera at the person's eye level<br />
    11. 11. 2. Use a Plain Background<br />A plain background shows off the subject you are photographing. Watch for distracting elements.<br />Distracting Background<br />Better<br />
    12. 12. Use Flash Outdoors<br />Bright sun can create unattractive deep facial shadows. Eliminate the shadows by using your flash to lighten the face. When taking people pictures on sunny days, turn your flash on. <br />Subject is Dark<br />With Flash<br />
    13. 13. Move in Close<br />If your subject is smaller than a car, take a step or two closer before taking the picture and zoom in on your subject. Your goal is to fill the picture area with the subject you are photographing. <br />Good <br />Better<br />
    14. 14. Move it From the Middle!<br />The middle of your picture is not the best place for your subject. Bring your picture to life by simply moving your subject away from the middle of your picture <br />
    15. 15. Lock the Focus<br />If your subject is not in the center of the picture, you need to lock the focus to create a sharp picture. <br />
    16. 16. Know Your Flash Range<br />The number one flash mistake is taking pictures beyond the flash's range. <br />For many cameras, the maximum flash range is less than fifteen feet—about five steps away<br />
    17. 17. Watch the Light<br />Next to the subject, the most important part of every picture is the light <br /><ul><li>Early or late in the day
    18. 18. Cloudy overcast days
    19. 19. Avoid bright direct sun</li></li></ul><li>Lighting Tips<br />When it comes to the direction of light, there are 360 degrees of possibilities. <br />High front light (sunlight) We are trained early on that high front light is the best type of light, and often it is.<br />Front light Front lighting illuminates the portion of the subject facing the photographer. Your camera's flash is the most common type of front lighting.<br />
    20. 20. Lighting Tips<br />Side light Side lighting is perfect when you want to emphasize texture and dimension. Side lighting sculpts a subject, revealing contours and textures. At a 45-degree angle to the side, it's one of the most flattering types of portrait lighting.<br />Back light Light that comes from behind your subject is by far the trickiest to use, but the dramatic results may be worth the effort.<br />
    21. 21. Take Some Vertical Pictures<br />All sorts of things look better in a vertical picture<br />
