"My favorite part about this week was taking the pictures and experimenting with the different angles." - Isabela
"We learned how framing and backgrounds really affect a picture." -Cherie
"The critique helped me to notice aspects of the photo that I hadn’t seen before. I got feedback to try not to include background that distracts from the subject of the photo." - Caleb

Pat Ward Williams, Accused/ Blowtorch/ Padlock, 1986. “I force the viewer to look at what is really going on by dissecting the important body of information and by directing with text what the viewer should notice: the tied hands (accused), the scarred back (blowtorch), and the lock, chain, and tree (padlock).”
Alexandra Bell, A Teenager with Promise, 2017
