Photo Op: An Introduction to Digital Photography and Editing

The National Gallery of Art's Kids Zone has wonderful interactive art activities for students.  One of their newer applications is Photo-Op.  This is a two part application to teach kids about digital photography and editing.  First, students use the Snapper, a virtual camera, to take photos.  The user can zoom in or out, change the settings, and play with the focus, aperture, and speed.  Next, students use the Editor to change the photo with filters, special effects, colors, layers, and lighting.  This application would be a great introduction to using digital cameras and digital editing software.
