In Karen story photography class I learned about the parts of camera and it’s function. Another thing I learned about taking a photo is you have to use the distance shot such as far or close shot and angles of the photo on weather if it’s high or low. Lastly I think the most important thing I learned is that you can tell a story through a photo which i think is the most important purpose of this class.
