“Think outside the box, Tanner. Stretch your mind,” Photography teacher Mrs. Walters said, as she challenged her students to use photoshop to make a creative photo edit.

4th hour at MHS can be just another class period for some students, but for others, it’s an exciting time to be creative and take photos. Mrs. Walters has a passion for photography and wants to share that love with her students.

“I love photography. It’s a thing I have so much fun with. When we are able to go outside and simply take photos together, I love doing that with you guys,” Walters said.

Photography offers a different learning environment, and for some students, it’s an opportunity to really showcase their talents and abilities.

“It makes you think differently. You look at things differently. You’re developing your creative thinking skills by doing something that you wouldn’t normally do, and you have to research it by finding new ways to do something,” Walters said.

When asked if everybody should take this class, Walters responded by saying, “No, if you don’t like photography, don’t take the class. Sometimes people take the class because they think it’s easy, but it’s not, it’s a lot of work. There is a lot that goes into it, and you have to really appreciate it, and want to do good in it.”

Even though photography can be a lot of work, it can be very rewarding.

“If you look at any of the Photo 3 students, from the beginning to now, [their photos] look amazing. They’ve come a long way, and I’m so proud of them. The things they are learning, not everyone has that skill, so it puts you just in a different marketplace,” Walters said.
