"It’s all hands-on photography which I love the most because it’s not just sitting there. We can apply everything we learned," said Molly Polirer from Lakes Community High School.
The campers feel like they can really learn better by having their own cameras to work with. They're not only learning about what to do with their camera, but how to do it.
"I could take the pictures but I didn’t know what half of the stuff on my camera meant. There are so many settings," said Anjali Patel from Lakes Community High School. "Now my camera can take better pictures than I ever knew because I've been taught what each setting means and learning how to use them."
Before bowling on Monday, the photojournalism campers decided to utilize the sunset by walking into the courtyard in between Heide and the University Center. There they met two strangers long boarding and utilized them as models. They also went to watch a wheelchair basketball game on campus. The four of them all agreed that it was the best experience they've had so far.
"It was really inspiring to see people who have disabilities come back and embrace what they have and make it into something big," said Patel.
Koshellek allowed students to talk to his father, who is also a professional photographer, on Skype.
"I really enjoyed talking to Joe's dad. He critiqued my pictures which meant a lot from someone in the business," said Jonathan Irias from Marquette High School.
To camper Haley Falcon from Harborside Academy, Koshellek's class is very important. This is her second year taking the class at KEMPASJW. "It’s always good to refresh and keep learning because you don’t always grasp it the first time," said Falcon. "Who wouldn't want a class with Joe?"
