The Power of a Smile

Power behind the Smile

Jumping The Stairs

Easy Stairwells I didn’t know jumping the stairs would lead to a revelation about photographs, exposures, and creativity. Silly challenge activities like rapid stair descents are not conducive for inspiring creative outcomes in photographic classrooms. Though in this case, one reckless activity spurred another. Jumping the stairs led to creative photographic discoveries, new learning experiences, […]
