My students all think of themselves as photographers. In this technological age where every person with a cell phone is an amateur photographer, it's easy to see why there was so much interest in my school's photography class. I want to teach my students about real photography. I want to teach my students about setting up a beautiful shot and using lighting, angles, and framing to create beautiful photos. I need this camera set to make that happen. This camera set will allow my students to see photography in a brand-new way which will only encourage their pursuit of this newfound passion. My students don't come from homes where high-quality cameras are at their disposal. Some of them have never actually seen a camera that wasn't inside a smartphone! I want to give my students a more genuine experience with photography. I want my students to appreciate the process of creating a good photo. I want them to think outside of Instagram when they think about what photography is all about. They have never had a camera like this and I can't wait to show them the difference it will make. You've got the perfect angle, the lighting's right; now all you have to do is push the button for a picture-perfect moment!
