A few weeks ago, maybe months, I posted a link where you could donate money for my outdoor photography clubs attempt to get 2 cameras through http://www.donorschoose.org/project/envi...dyi_almost_home. I am not sure if anyone here donated, but 3 weeks ago we received our cameras thanks to generous donations and matching funds from UPS.
Here are a few pictures my 8th graders snapped on their first outing with the cameras, they are Canon EOS 60D with the 18-135mm lens. We had to do a little cropping and editing, but that's part of the learning process too. We are fortunate enough to have school grounds that accommodate the great outdoors and abounds with wildlife for the kids to explore. Needless to say, I am excited to be able to use these full time with the kids next year.
