"Light Graffiti"

This "Light Graffiti" activity & project also includes:

The results of this project are sure to brighten any school hallway or dreary set of walls. It begins as learners choose or take photographs and convert them into negative/positive space images. They print, then stencil the image onto tagboard, which they will then use as the foundation of a fun photographic technique. In groups of three, they'll photograph their images in a dark room at a low shutter speed while their peer runs a glow light behind the stencil image. The result is a glowing image that shows both positive and negative space.
