    Your cover photo is stunning! Did you take it?

    I love what you had to say about kids knowing how to consume but not how to create with technology. I hadn’t really thought of that before.

    And they are lacking so many basic skills. We have a high level of technology available in my district, but it still feels like I am starting over every year with my classes.

    Thanks Tony!

      Yes! I took it while my wife and I were in Yosemite for our Anniversary. I did this blog post there with very little internet.

    Hi Tony,

    My greatest challenge in the classroom is to bring students to a professional level of skill using the technology in the digital paradigm of photography. Students start off thinking they can produce professional grade photographs with their phones. They can not distill what controls quality in the field. When they learn that the analog to digital conversion software embedded in the digital chip, optics, papers & pigment-based inks, resolution, and Raw workflow in that order are quality governing parameters, their eyes get wide. It really is about the “can and can not”. Great presentation. And you get the candy bar for authoring the presentation from the coolest location.

      Yes. You kind of have to give up getting them all to that level though. Some can get close though!
