• When the class had Angie Monsen talk to us about how she takes pictures and edits them after, I learned a lot. Angie did not use much of Photoshop in her pictures, but relied on LightRoom to send her finished

    When taking these pictures, I thought it would be cool to have the pictures telling a story. It was challenging to get a story in just three pictures and to play with the depth of field. I think that because the

    • Hello Olivia! Nice work. I wish the pictures were bigger so that I could see them more clearly, but what I can see of them really spoke to me and depicted a story. Do you think that different readers may interpret this piece differently than others? Why or why not? Thank you for sharing your work!

  • The important person I took portraits of is Coach Cordova. He is important to the community because he coaches our football team and teaches some of our physical education classes. Coach Cordova also helps student

    • Dear Olivia,
      I really enjoyed reading the reasoning behind why you picked to person that you picked. I think that in order to be a great coach you have to be engaged in the community. To me Coach Cardova sounds like a great coach. I really liked how you took the picture in a place that is related to what he does. Great Photo!

    • Olivia,
      I deeply enjoyed your post as it is showing off one of the positively minded people you have in your school. It is great to have an adult to talk to in school, who you can just lay everything out to unfiltered. I play football as well and know how down to Earth some coaches can be, but when it comes to study and preparation they are as serious as you can get. Thank you for your post I found it very enlightening!

    • Olivia,I really enjoyed your post. Coaches are often very important people in communities, as they influence the development of their athletes in so many different ways. I enjoyed reading about why you chose Coach Cordova as your subject, and why you photographed him where you did. Thank you for sharing your picture with us.

    • Olivia, I liked your post. In an age where kids spend more and more time away from home and less time with their parents, Coaches can be an important source of wisdom and attitude. Without positive role models, kids can end up passive-aggressive, misguided, and suffer from a lack of confidence. Coach Cordova looks like a good guy, and your school is lucky to have him.
