This was an excellent resource. It was easy to use and encouraged my students to engage more in the lesson. It was simple to use and did not require much planning.

This was a wonderful resource that I used earlier this year. This was modified to accommodate middle school students (6th-8th Grade), but it really helped. I don’t have a background in photography. Your help is greatly appreciated and I will be looking at your products in person for instruction.
