While photographing a morning of classroom activity at St. Thomas More Play Group, the administration presented their idea to decorate the walls of their admissions office with black-and-white photos of closeups of the busy hands of their students. I felt the best way to do this would be to make carefully planned  images with willing students, but I offered to try to get some live action hand shots during the session. Here are some of the results of my test.
