During a field trip to George-Hi Plantation, Shutterbugs II student Anne Price captured a scenic photograph of an old wagon in a green pasture, horses in the background. She called her photo ‘Clean Green View,’ andnoted that she liked the photograph because it depicted peace and tranquility. ‘It also showed some of the things I learned in class, like framing and lines, which I captured in the fence and trees.’
Shutterbugs II student Judy Boney used her close-up setting to get a portrait of a cow on her farm. The expression, she said, was wonderful and she was excited to be able to get the shot. One of the things she liked best about the second level photography class was the emphasis on the world around you. ‘I do see things different,’ she admitted.
Hilda Carr turned her camera’s lens on the sunsets at Topsail Beach, which she called breathtaking. In this Shutterbugs II exam photo, Carr said she tried to capture the peacefulness of the setting and the lines she had been taught to look for during the second level class.
Calling her photograph simply ‘Flipper,’ Shutterbugs II student Cinda Bass said she used this picture as one of her exam pieces because it represented so many of the things she learned during the class, including color contrast, lines and reflections. ‘I liked the color contrast between the red tow boat, the grayish water and the suprise element of the dolphin that happened into the frame.’
On a field trip to Liberty Hall in Kenansville, Shutterbugs II student Vicki Bass captured a portrait of the ‘Main House,’ the title she used for her exam photo. On a beautiful March evening, Bass said she was able to capture the shadows from the house and the trees.
