What do cows, street signs and shoes have in common? Probably not much — except all served as inspiration for Mitchell High School photography students last semester. Marica Shannon, an art instructor at MHS, said she had 26 students in last semester’s photography class. She said the class is for 10th- through 12th-grade students and has been popular every semester it has been offered. “It’s more challenging than I think what they expect,” she said. During the class, Shannon said students learn the basics of camera knowledge and photography skills, such as aperture and shutter speeds, photo composition and studying different photographers.

Once they dive into the photography portion of the class, she said they are given about one assignment per week, which could focus on lines — how lines in a photo can draw eyes to the main subject, for example — or their final project, which was 20 photos of one subject.
