Students in COMM 1316 News Photography 1 and COMM 1318 Photography 1 also voted on their favorite photos. 

These students are learning how to use their cameras as well as how to evaluate photos.  What makes a “good” photo?  The photographer must decide what subject to shoot…what to include in the background…what angle to choose…and how to compose the elements in the frame in a pleasing manner.    

So, as part of their voting, students in these two photography classes also had to list reasons for their choices.  Many of their comments are included below along with their voting results.
