Shutterbugs 3 student Ann Price shot this landscape photo of Chimney Rock during a photography club outing to Chimney Rock during the fall. She liked the photo, she said, because of the stark contrast between the rock and flag, standing erect in the morning wind.
Calling her Shutterbugs 3 final exam photograph ‘Double D Ducks’, student Selma Turlington noted that she chose this photograph because of the reflection of the bird in the water. Taken at Sylvan Heights in Scotland Neck, the photograph, Turlington said, was a good example of the new things she learned during the third level class at Sampson Community College.
Carol Gore took this photograph during a Shuttergbugs Photography Club outing to PARI, the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute near Brevard. She called her exam selection ‘The Ridge at Sunset,’ and noted that she selected the photograph because she used manual settings, capturing the essence of a cold evening high atop a mountain.
Shutterbugs 3 student Hilda Carr also captured the brilliance of the sunset and the beauty of the sky against the backdrop of mountains during the PARI visit. She liked the photo, she said, because she was able to master manual settings, something she learned during the level 3 class.
Using an ISO of 100 and manual settings – and placing her camera on the tripod – student Anglea Lee took this photograph of a full moon from her yard in Sampson County. She selected it, she noted, because of the simplicity yet beauty of the photograph.
Judy Boney captured this crop-dusting plane in action earlier this year on a farm near her home in Sampson County. She liked, the photo, she said, because she was able to catch the plane in flight, take the photo in thirds and detail the beauty of the farmland as well as the action taking place.
