One of the greatest joys of my 16th semester as a professor at Hope College has been teaching my very first photography class ("Project 101") through the First-Year-Seminar program. Teaching students who have had limited exposure to the art of photography, who were using a very wide range of cameras (most utilized only their cell phone cameras), and who were all using different editing software platforms was nothing short of a challenge. Our primary class assignment was simple: Take, edit, and post on Flickr one photo a day for 101 days -- one for each day of the semester. Below are some highlights from my students' projects -- click on each photo to go directly to their Flickr page. Amazing work!
