(No Rating) Photography in Focus September 06, 2009

Posted by: ruth

I ordered a classroom set of "Focus On Photography" two years ago after having my students evaluate my sample copy. They said they would use it if we had them. I love it! The students love it! It is full of interesting pictures and photography assignments. The Photoshop tutorials are easy for students to follow. Aside from my unit on pinhole photography and the six Guidelines to better photography, I use the book for all my lessons. The text book I had before was dull and boring. Students enjoy this text.
