I really enjoyed the classes that Wolf Camera offers because I have learned so much from actually seeing and doing with a real person. In fact, the instructor said that these classes were free for customers and I could return as many times as I wanted to them. There are 4 classes that are repeated over and over. Even adults sometimes need to hear the same things over and over before it sinks in, especially when there is so much information to learn.
Wow! The customer service that is offered here is phenomenal. Whenever I have a question about getting my camera to do what I want, there is always someone there willing to answer my question. I have never gotten any camera from Wolf Camera before but I can promise you that it will definitely be the place I go for my camera needs. Again, this is a great example of how customer service can really make a difference in a business! This would be another great lesson for the classroom!
I have some hiking and camping trips coming up and I can’t wait to use my camera to take many photos. Instead of a camera bag, I bought a diaper bag to hold my camera. There are plenty of pockets and I’m hoping that someone seeing it in my car might not want to risk breaking in a car for a diaper bag where they might for a camera bag.
I am doing the Photo A Day Project again where I take pictures each day and choose one for the photo of the day. I am also using assignments given by Today’s Posting and I really like how these assignments are helping me learn about my camera and about taking photos. I am learning to look at things differently and from different perspectives. This would be great lessons for the classroom. The lesson could be short and to the point but I believe students would learn a lot. Maybe instead of a photo a day, there could be a photo a week and students could share their best photo for the week.
Students could also use photography for projects and this would be a great way to assess their learning. Students who have trouble writing would be able to take photos to get their points across. Then they could explain the connection between their photo and the information they feel is important. Students might even find out that they have a knack for photography!
It seems like the more I practice and the more I learn, the more fun photography is!
Do you take a lot of photos? Do you use them or photography in class? What kind of projects would be great to do in a classroom? Please share!
