Welcome to Photography
February and March: Days of Creation Challenge
Welcome to The Days of Creation Photography Challenge! We’re going to be stretching our photography skills and creativity during the next few weeks. I’m going to be sharing some tips and ideas for capturing everything the Lord created during that first creation week.
Some of these challenges may be easier, others harder. But the idea behind it all is that you take the knowledge you have learned about how to use your camera to make a “creatively exposed” image, and put it to the test of being able to capture anything you want.
Michele Peterson is a not-for-profit photographer who specializes in capturing the moment, preserving memories, and striving to bless others through pictures. What started out as an interest in learning how to take a better picture turned into a passion to get as much knowledge of photography as possible. This led to a position on the high school newspaper as a photographer, what Michele still calls “my all-time favorite class.”
After high school, while pursuing a degree in nursing, photography continued as a hobby, growing into a daily part of her life. A few years back, Michele began entering contests, and has won a number of awards. She continues to be a student of the art through various classes. Michele teaches her own children, enjoys learning from others in shared settings, and enjoys sharing her experiences. She desires to spark an interest in others to perhaps take up photography as a lifelong interest as well.
This course is best taken as a one-half credit course. This is aligned with the HSLDA-based recommendation, for an elective class, to log 120 hours for a full credit, 60 for a half-credit. This course is geared to about 60 hours of work if all 30 weeks of lessons are taken and assignments are completed.
Suggested projects are optional, unless families choose to replace an assignment with a project, for any given lesson. Otherwise, you are free to pick and choose as many projects as you would like to complete the course.
