Did you take a lot of pictures during the holidays? How about your kids? How did they turn out? Many of us don’t know the first thing about taking a good picture. All I do is point the camera on my phone and click the button. If you or your kids would like to learn more about photography so you can take outstanding pictures throughout the year, and especially during next year’s holiday season, try our Photography course with Michele Peterson. Everybody can enjoy this 30-week course of text-based lessons and original photography covering topics such as the functions of the camera, composition and elements of design, and more. As an extra bonus, if the student takes all 30 weeks and completes all the assignments, he/she can earn one-half credit toward the high school transcript.
