Hi I am a teacher and I am struggling with coming up with subjects for my photography class to shoot. Can any of you tell me some simple easy beginner assignments that will keep us busy for the next 4 weeks?!

Thank in advance.

The only thing i thought of at the moment is Oil on Water photography...i was just doing it for fun but my friend who is a photo teacher asked me about it so i think she may have used it. Here's a couple of my examples:

IMGP1642 by L. Trozzo, on Flickr


Basically its oil on water with a background. Here's the tutorial i followed as a guideline:
Oil on Water photography




Edit:
Is is something you want them to shoot in class or out of class?

I dunno if this is really appropriate but i had a good time with shooting smoke:

Or they can experiment with the shutter...?

Okay last thing, are you using photoshop? Composites are cool too

What about:
Creative Use of Motion (slow shutter speed)
The Colour Red (red has to be the main focus of the image)
Macro
Repetition or Patterns in Nature
Graffiti as Art

Those are just some that our photo club has used for our theme nights in the past...
