Students at Springville Junior High have many different fine arts classes that are available to them. One of these classes is a photography class, in which students learn how to use a camera and take different pictures and digitally modify their pictures. According to Mr. Mitch Cudney, the photography teacher at Springville Junior High, any student who wishes to take this class needs to have patience and be willing to work hard.

“I chose to take this class because I thought it would be fun, and I like to learn how to use a camera,” Andi Dockstater, a photography student at Springville Junior High said.

In the photography class, there are many different projects that students are required to do as assignments. Their projects vary from anything from taking pictures of emotions, to pictures of different objects.

 “One of my favorite projects was when we had to take pictures of clouds.” Andi went on, “I also enjoy using Gimp, a computer program where you take a picture off the internet and change it into something else.”

“I like teaching photography; its challenging, but it’s also a lot of fun,” Mr. Cudney said.
