I had a few spare moments at the end of my Year 12 class yesterday, so I initiated a quick word exchange. Nothing fancy, just a quick game à la 'Exquisite Corpse', where students wrote one photography-related word on a piece of paper and then passed it on to the next person to do the same. The instructions were simple: Write one word at a time - one that has reoccurred in Photography lessons in Year 12 and helped their learning (yet trying to avoid the most obvious e.g. 'photograph', 'visual', 'elements' etc.). It was spur of the moment, yet I was curious to know which words might be the most popular. It turned out to be these: 'Framing', 'depth', 'context', and 'contrast'. Truth be told I would have liked a few more descriptive words; we are spoiled for choice with the language of photography. But then again, perhaps I could have explained the task better, chosen my words more carefully.
