Create a slideshow of your community -- but from unusual angles. This workshop opens your eyes to new perspectives and is simply FUN!
Take your camera (or smartphone) and go exploring in your community. Avoid the usual places (the welcome sign, the town green) and focus on areas that might go unnoticed. Get up close to your subjects and experiment. You might find beauty in a barbed wire fence or mystery in the door to an abandoned milkhouse. Think of your compositions as individual stories. See if your classmates can identify the places you choose. And have fun with it!
