TPG Activity: Photographic Distortion

On Photography
Screenshot of instructions.

This activity, conceived by photographic artist Gisela Torres, invites you to use every day recyclable and household objects to create and share a series of distorted photographic portraits.

The key aim of creating portraits in the style of a funfair amusement attraction is to learn through playing with lens distortion, light sources, and printed portraits.
