Next week we start a two week segment of ds106 focussed (get it?) on photography. I’m putting out a request to add your suggestions in an open Google doc at

Links to articles are great, but I am really looking for personal strategies and ideas that would help my students refine their approach to visualizing, composing, etc- not just the technical stuff, the things that move one from snapshots to art.

For example, Brian Metcalfe shared this audio narrated slideshow by Darren Kuropatawa:

Maybe I can arm twist Alec or Dean into echoing it, they do well with these Google Doc Tom Sawyer Fence Painting gigs.

Hint. Ahem. The link.

If this kind of stuff has any value, please support me monthly on Patreon or a one time PayPal kibble toss
Profile Picture for Alan Levine aka CogDog
An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.


    1. I did not sync the audio in slideshare, I flashed through some slides do quickly I could not use their sync tool- there is an mp3 of the presentation just a little down the page (under heading “Audio Recording “) you have to advance the slides yourself; it does not have a film strip beep

  1. Do I have to be in your class to look at the suggestions? I just bought a Nikon D3100 and it is my first DSLR camera (all of my others were just point and shoot). I need all the help that I can get!
