Then place your phone an arm's length away from the flower

Point the camera at the flower

Perceiving nature in a sea of flowers, visually impaired students carried out photography creation with the theme of "spring".

I want to learn how to shoot by myself

Don't want to bother people."

And it was recorded with the camera

Write a good shooting note"

Teacher Wu said

"Is this picture cool? I slapped it with my ear! ”

Visually impaired students show their photos in the circle of friends.

Reporter's Notes

Teacher Wu asked me to teach a photography lesson to the children, and when I made a PPT, I was very distressed, because looking at the photos I took in the past, it was difficult for me to find one taken with other senses other than vision.

Because of the visibility, I focused too much on light and shadow, form, composition, foreground and background, and neglected the influence of other senses on the photo. So I grabbed my camera and walked to the Guangzhou Cultural Center, not far from my home, intending to close my eyes and photograph the hydrangeas there and feel what it was like to shoot in the dark.

I tried to walk slowly through the blind road to the cultural center, but I couldn't help but open my eyes and check the road conditions from time to time because of the sound of cars. In the process, I photographed hibiscus and hydrangeas by touch, and it turned out that "blind shooting" was more difficult than I thought. First of all, people will unconsciously feel a little anxious in the dark, and it is not easy to pay attention to taking pictures; Secondly, although I touched the direction of the flower with my hand, it was really easy to shoot crookedly by feeling, and sometimes only half of the flower was included in the frame, and the other half was out of the frame.

I was deeply touched by this experience, as it turned out that the visually impaired students had fully experienced the scenes in these images before the shooting. Whether it is the roar of cars on the road or the soft touch of flowers, I feel it in advance with my heart or hands.

"Is this picture cool? I slapped it with my ear! ”

On the wall of the school building of Qiming School is written: "The light is in front of our eyes, and the light is in our hearts......"

Looking at the photos taken by the visually impaired students who have graduated from Kai Ming School, some of the neat pictures are surprising, and people with healthy eyes may not be so right. Others, on the other hand, are emotional, out-of-focus but beautiful. Their photos are full of emotion, and you can get a glimpse into their inner world through those photos. It's not easy to photograph something and express your true feelings, but they did it.
