Take Nothing but Pictures

Divide off into pairs as people arrive. One person is the photographer and
one is the camera. The photographer selects a scene that he would like to
take a “picture” of and directs (gently) the camera (whose eyes are closed)
into position. When the photographer takes a picture (gently tugs on the
camera’s ear) the camera places his hands in front of him, fingers in L
shapes to make a frame and opens his eyed for 10 seconds. After ten seconds
he then closes his eyes and is directed to another location to draw what
he saw. When the picture is complete, return to the scene and see what was
right and wrong. Switch places and repeat in another location. Taking the
“picture” outside brings in the natural aspect.
