Students in action

Hello all,

We are filling our days with photography of all kinds. So far we've photographed Acadia National Park, both in the forests and along the shores, downtown Bar Harbor, sunset from the top of Cadillac Mountain, the Bass Harbor Lighthouse and the locals on Little Cranberry Island, to name a few.

The students are really learning about their cameras and becoming more open to approach people. Technically, they are using their shutter speeds and apertures to achieve the photos they want. We've been amazed with the improvement we've seen even since they arrived.

Today we made time for a bit of fun with swimming and a 10-mile bike ride on the beautiful carriage roads of the island. A few students rode bikes for the first time and loved it!
