Rule of Thirds. The Rule of Thirds is perhaps the most well known principle of photographic composition.

Rule of Thirds

The “Rule of Thirds” one of the first things that budding digital photographers learn about in classes on photography and rightly so as it is the basis for well balanced and interesting shots. I will say right up front however that rules are meant to be broken and ignoring this one doesn’t mean your images are necessarily unbalanced or uninteresting. However a wise person once told me that if you intend to break a rule you should always learn it first to make sure your breaking of it is all the more effective!

What is the Rule of Thirds? The basic principle behind the rule of thirds is to imagine breaking an image down into thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have 9 parts. As you’re taking an image you would have done this in your mind through your viewfinder or in the LCD display that you use to frame your shot. On videotelling: Jamie Keddie at TEDxWarsaw.

Creating machinima can be as simple as logging into a game and recording the action as it unfolds in real time. Admittedly, the results of such an ad hoc approach might not be particularly inspiring. As with computer games, teachers and practitioners are considering machinima’s relevance to education from a variety of perspectives. As this brief outline indicates, some machinima techniques call for advanced skills, while others are open to the complete beginner. Digital Video in the Classroom.

Education in a technological world) During this half term, I've been busy working with our three lower school classes on a rather special project in their ICT lessons.

Education in a technological world)

It all began back in April when I blogged about an app I discovered in the app store that would allow a user to create an aged movie. My brain began to think just how I could incorporate this technology into our planned topic of 'Movie Making'. It seemed too good to be true - crowbarring a video creation app into a topic on movie making? How easy would that be! So, my plans began to take shape. However, I quickly threw all of that out of the window, because the BBC showed the first part of a series from Paul Merton all about the birth of Hollywood.

Lesson One consisted of watching parts of the Paul Merton programme. In our second lesson we began to sketch out the ideas for the storyline. During the evolution of their work, some of these ideas were amended, or dropped, as they realised that it was either too hard to achieve, or too hard to film.

The process of creating and publishing videos can be a great way to get students excited about researching, storytelling, and sharing their work with an audience.

To help bring clarity to the styles and tools, I have a rather simple outline that I use in my video creation workshops. That outline with suggested tools for creating videos in each style is included in the PDF embedded below.
