Student Reflections

"I've learned to look at a photo very closely to make meaning of it. I thought that photos were used to keep souvenirs, but now I know that pictures are also taken to send an important message to the reader." Tamara

"I learned that in photos you have to see beyond the obvious just like you have to read beyond the words in a book to really understand and enjoy it." Robbie

"In creating photographs I have learned that you can capture themes or emotions like freedom, vitality or loneliness." Brandy

"I have learned that the person who takes the photograph decides exactly what they want in the picture and the message they want to send." Zoe

"Your eyes are like a camera. When you see something there are no words all over it to describe what it is, it's the picture itself that sends you the message." Ashley
