Hi, all. Later today I will be photographing a bunch of kids in an elementary school classroom. The kids are half "big" kids (4th grade) who serve as mentors to pre-K and kindergarten students, with the mentees being the other half. Mostly the big kids read to the small, although they do an art project together as well. They will be spread over the classroom, on the floor and at small tables. I did the same thing in the fall and ended up with boring photos, despite spending lots of time in the floor and at the kids' eye level Although I accept that the end result isn't going to be anything too creative or groundbreaking, I thnk there has to be something I can do to end up with something other than a few hundred snapshots of kids sitting next to each other with books.
I will be using a D7K and have the 18-105 and 55-300 kit lenses, as we'll the 35mm 1.8. There's decent light I'm the rooms thanks to windows, although there are of course less than stellar fluorescent lights as the primary lighting. I have an SB400, which I used some of the time last time.
So, considering the above, any suggestions? Sorry for the short fuse -- we thought the trip would be canceled due to weather.
