As part of the credit requirements toward their high school diplomas through the High School Completion Program, Paul Secoy and Michelle Barrett are earning art credit by studying photography with professional photographer Christine Glade.
“Neither student had previously given photography much attention, other than snapping photos of friends with their phones,” Glade said. “But after only a few sessions, each of them demonstrate a natural eye and a strong understanding of the fundamental photography concepts we’ve covered so far. Their work is thoughtful. I’m very impressed.”
Samples of their work:
Above are the tall pines near our building in Manchester. Michelle took that image as part of a study of repetition and pattern.
Below her image of raindrops and the distant hills was part of an assignment on foreground and background.
Paul Secoy showed off his understanding of subject, rule of thirds, and pattern with this photo of his new puppy.
And also captured a wonderful image demonstrating foreground and background.
