While hiking along the coast in Ireland with her family, Digital Dos and Don’ts student Lisa Turlington captured this unique photograph which, through a reflection in the mirror, turned the camera on herself and the beauty of the landscape. The judges who reviewed the photo selections loved the angle of the photograph, the creativity and the landscape.
Calling her photograph ‘Up, Up and Away,” Lisa Mitchell caught this special exhibition aircraft as it headed high into the sky during the Wings Over Wayne event earlier this year. Mitchell said she loved the photograph because of its clarity and color, and the action exhibited.
Digital Do’s student Melissa Herring’s photograph of Old Glory flying in the wind was the judges’ choice as one of her best of the semester. Taken in Mount Olive, Herring said she used no flash and chose to get a vertical shot to show off the majestic beauty of the flag. ‘It was a beautiful day and this was a great reminder of our freedom,’ she wrote about her photograph.
Cesar Mendez’s beach photo was, he said, ‘a lucky shot,’ that captured a perfect beach day complete with seagulls flying and children playing in the sand. ‘It was the first picture I took at the beach. It was a happy moment,” Mendez wrote about his photograph.
Calling his photograph ‘NC State Fair,’ Digital Do’s student Cesar Mendez caught the essence of a busy evening on the midway. ‘No one was paying me any attention, and I was just enjoying the moment, especially the guy and little girl that are also in the frame.’
