I have not posted much in the last month partly because I have been teaching photography to a group of 9th and 10th grade students in our local Ludlow area. Borrowing from a Rotary club in New Hampshire, the Ludlow Rotary club partnered with the town to launch Quest. The Quest program is summed up at at the Ludlow website - "for 7-weeks a total of 27 students entering into 9th and 10th grade were treated to a unique summer experience filled with recreational and educational activities that included kayaking, fly fishing, archery, culinary arts, photography, carpentry, video production, jewelry making, dancing, sports, automotive and much more. Special field trips were also planned during the 7-week program." With the help of my friend, Barb Wendt, we spent several weeks exploring with 8 students the basics of photographic composition. And the results exceeded everyone's expectations. The slide show below shows the 51 photos exhibited by the students at the Quest Gala last night. These shooters qualify as talented "young guns".
