Students practiced photographing Barbies around a makeshift candle-lit campfire to understand the complexity of photographing in low lighting with fire. By using a candle and Barbies, students were able to practice analyzing exposure based on the subject of the photo (the candle or the Barbies). Be sure to check with your administration and get approval prior to this lesson as many schools have a no-candle-burning policy.
