I'm a teacher, and a keen photographer. We're encouraged to take photos of interesting stuff we do in school as evidence for inspectors and the like. I'm fed up of having lots of dull pictures of kids sitting at desks, either looking awkward or smiling cheesily. When I'm trying to take photos and keep an eye on the other kids at the same time, my creative eye seems to desert me, and I find it hard to come up with ideas to vary my shots. Any advice? One thing I do find useful is to take shots when the kids are up and about doing something more active, and to use a long lens to capture natural interactions. It's a bit hit and miss, but I have got some lovely shots that way.
