This year has been a learning experience, and it has been amazing. Starting in photo I learned about the rule of thirds, sports photography, and so much more. Even though I left photo for one rotation I learned a ton in sports about writing and interviews. All around it’s been a great year.
I look to the future and have many ideas for next year. I would like to have each student get an SD card to make it easier to keep track of photos and video, and make it the students responsibility of having the photos. I would also like to sell the cameras we don’t use in order to buy a new camera(maybe two), which would make us possible for us to film and take photos at a he same time during class. I would like to figure out a way to number or name each camera to make it so when you need to look for a photo you don’t have to look on every camera. Also by using white boards I believe it will be more productive when writers and photographers will have the chance to cross off their name to seem accomplished. Some classes I went to in Seattle suggested rewards often, so maybe we could get a box of candy or something that a writer for each section gets a piece if they finish their story first and it’s done well.
With many ideas looking to the future I’m very excited for next year, and I’m happy with the way this year has influenced me.
