Kingston Elementary Career Day

Long time, no blog.  Here's what I been up to...

I was asked to speak at Kingston Elementary School for their Career Day.  It was a little out of my comfort zone.  I mean, is there anyone that really enjoys public speaking?  

I gave five, maybe six 20 minute presentations about being a photographer.  I talked about how I started and what I liked to shoot (with a camera, not a gun).  I prepared a slideshow with LOTS of pictures and answered LOTS of good questions.  The kids really had me thinking and put me to the test.  It was so much fun and all in all I honestly enjoyed talking about photography, it ended up being really easy for me.

I also showed the kids a little bit of the editing process by snapping a pic of someone in the room and then changing their hair color, adding mustaches to the boys or taking something out of an image.  They LOVED that!!  Here are a few of the unedited shots of my volunteers...

I wanted to say thank you to Kingston Elementary School for inviting me to your Career Day.  I need to also thank Mrs. Sanders for letting me borrow her classroom and Smartboard.  Of course, I couldn't leave without snapping a couple of her students...
