In JH Photo class, students are creating a cupcake business. The objective is to learn how to photograph foods and think through all of the details in starting a business, from scratch (pun intended). We started the project by brainstorming necessary steps which included choosing location, hours, product, marketing, name, slogan or motto, and, of course, the Signature Cupcake. After watching an episode of "Cupcake Wars" for inspiration, students broke into groups of two and designed their menu and then frosted and decorated their cupcakes. Using a light box, students photographed their creations, checked them for clarity, and then enjoyed eating them. The next step is to create the business brochure with all the descriptions of what they will be serving, including that signature cupcake. Lastly, each group will present their "business" to the class. Using a rubric, their peers will judge which cupcake business is most likely to thrive and survive in the Bay Area. It's a great learning experience - and tasty, too!

Each week, the JH Photo classes are challenged to photograph something they would not normally think about. The students are given just one word and have to photograph their interpretation of that word. The photographs are submitted anonymously and critiqued by fellow students as to their strengths and weaknesses. Finally, the students cast their votes and the top three places are announced. The winner gets to take a prize from the prize bag. Last week, our word was "transportation." Enjoy the students' interpretations!
