Q: What did you learn while taking photographs?
I learned that the composition of a photograph is really important if I want to be able to tell a story. (about her first posting)...The bud and the Christmas wreath really tell a story about climate change.
Q: How has this project helped you to understand the model program (My World)?
It helped me to be more aware and observant of the scenery and of the things happening around me.

Elvin and Jefferson have formed "art co-op", taking photographs together synergistically (where the result is greater than the sum of its parts). They went on line and found instructions on how to make "light paintings" using an LED flashlight. By keeping the shutter open for 3 seconds and moving the flashlight, they were able to create these amazing images.
Since our last post, we have taken a field trip to the Noguchi Museum in LIC and MoMA where we saw a sculpture exhibition by Martin Puryear. We also had a chance to go to Bryant Park and go ice skating. photo credits: ladder-jefferson cortes, child with puddle-veronica zamora, xmas bulb-adilene guerrera, digiphoto class- all of us.
