Photography Class Popular with Students

The photography class is in such a demand here at Tiny Toones that we added a third class in addition to the other two that I teach everyday. So far the students have embraced photography as a means of expression. It's been interesting having a translator for my class and holding a three-way conversation between the students, the translator, and I.

I'll be moving the students fairly quickly since we have to prepare for our photo gallery coming up at the end of this month. I'll be focusing mainly on photojournalism and guiding them to document their lives and share their story. There are many obstacles that we're facing like having my lame laptop to work from and a limit of cameras and funds, but I know somehow things will come together. God is good like that no matter how lame I am or what situation I'm in.

Enjoy these photos of some of my students. Their smiles are a result of generous donors who have contributed to the purchase of 10 digital cameras. Thanks again! :)

To the left you'll see the photography class flyer. For some reason they used a photo of a Filipino actor holding a camera instead of a photo of me...

OoOooOO I love these pics Jen May!
You're doing a superb job with the over-eager kids, language barrier, your lame laptop (lol) and the crusty heat!

Can't wait for the exhibition!
