Rotaion 1's Last Week of Wonderful Work!! (Delayed - Sorry!)

This is the last batch of pictures from the first activities rotation of photo kids.  Some of them have a natural eye for great pictures, and they've all improved notably from the beginning of their time in photography.  Well done, kids!

The week's assignment was basically "Hit me with your best shot," which the students did!

(I'm a repeat subject, I know, but I'm a willing subject and they pick their own favorite to share and post.)

This Week's Theme: Portraits

A true portrait should today and a hundred years from today, be the testimony of how this person looked and what kind of human being he was. – Philippe Halsman, borrowed from the great Steve McCurry's blog

Our mission this week was portraiture -- one of the most difficult types of photography to do well, and arguably the most compelling when sucessful.  How did we do?
