Shutterbugs 3 student Betty Puryear took the framing lessons she has learned in her Sampson Community College photography classes and put them to work at Biltmore where she was able to capture a good view of the famous house from across the lake, framed by a V in a tree.
The beauty of a day seen through photography student Betty Puryear’s camera lens. Here she caught a butterfly as he landed in a clump of bright yellow flowers. Whether taking photos of cascading waterfalls in the mountains or turning her lens to nature, Puryear said she loved being one with her camera and allowing it to tell the stories of the beauty she encounters.
During a recent field trip to western North Carolina, Shutterbugs 3 student Paula Carter took a photograph of these colorful leaves made more vibrant by the light shining through them. Learning how to use the light to enhance photographs was just one of the lessons Carter said she learned while in Gloria Edwards’ photography classes at SCC.
Again using light as her backdrop, Paula Carter turned her lens to the farm, capturing two donkeys enjoying the peace and quiet of a Sampson County afternoon.
Kelly Jones, a Shutterbugs 2 student, used a lesson in looking up to catch the sun’s rays cascading through the brilliant oranges, yellows and greens of a fall afternoon in the mountains.
Teresa Young, a Shutterbugs 2 student, shot this photograph at McDaniel of the old general store. The light, she said, was perfect to illuminate the store. Young said she had learned a lot from the photography classes, including that timing was vital and taking lots of photographs necessary in order to get the ‘one good one.’
