Final focus


Shutterbugs 4 students round out classes with photo finish

Joanna Dunlap caught this cardinal enjoying an afternoon breeze outside her window. She liked the picture, she said, because she was able to focus on the bird before he saw her and took flight.


Shutterbugs 4 student Maggie Williams said she loved this photograph, taken at Topsail Beach, because she was able to catch a seagull in flight across a ‘beautiful blue sky.’ The fluffy white clouds, she said, was a ‘wonderful extra.’


Using her close-up setting - and quite a bit of patience - photography student Karen Melvin honed in on this butterfly perched on a bright pink azalea back in the spring. ‘I love this picture,’ Melvin said. Ditto the judges, who selected it as the best of her final exam shots.


During a field trip to the nation’s capital earlier this year, Shutterbugs 4 student Sebrinia Johnson took a photograph of flags surrounding the Washington Monument, the wind helping them all to stand at attention, an appropriate photograph on the eve of the nation’s birthday.


Michelle Wells got upclose and personal with this tree at Sampson Community College during a photograph scavenger hunt, where students were urged to find unique pictures. Here the veins of a leaf glisten in the late afternoon, the background blurred, one of the many lessons students are taught in all four of Gloria Edwards’ photography classes at SCC.


Light painting was yet another lesson SCC photography students were taught in the third and fourth level classes. Here Shutterbugs 4 student Annette Johnson shows off her skills in the art, photographing a rose she lighted before snapping away.
