And the fourth objective was to show the students what sort of improvements they can make to their images using image manipulation software. In this case we used GIMP, software which can be downloaded for free. I must say though that it wasn't the easiest software in the world but it can do much of what Photoshop does. I think it just takes some getting used to. Still, we're hoping to have access to Photoshop Elements for next year.

Overall I thought the students did a great job. They really seemed eager to learn, something I imagine isn't always apparent during their day to day coursework. And for this I felt I had to showcase their images. I am really proud of what they came up with and at times I look at these images and forget that they aren't my own. I hope that this experience will stay with them forever, making them think twice before setting their cameras to Auto and making them see more than just their subject when they look through the lens.
