As my first semester as a photography major is coming to a close I find myself thinking back to how the semester began. My first assignment in Digital Photography1 - a photo course I am currently taking - was a scavenger hunt done on the college campus looking for the letters of the alphabet. This was a great first assignment because it was fun and helped me start the semester off by stretching my creativity. Since this first assignment I think I have grown and become a much better photographer because of what this semester has been teaching me. I am very grateful for the lessons I have learned along the way.
