Ron Schmidt, who supervises the CARE Program for the Columbia Parks and Recreation, asked me to teach a fine-art photography course to the participating art students this past summer. Students are paid to attend the program with a weekly paycheck. They gain valuable work professional work experience in a fine-art setting. The students work with various visiting artists and create artworks to be shown and sold at a gallery show at the end of the program. The money earned at the gallery show is put back into the CARE Program to cover costs. Here is a photo of my photography students at the gallery opening at the Balsamo Warehouse in the North Village Arts District in downtown Columbia, Missouri.

The photograph was taken a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera with a Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USMlens at ƒ/4.0 with a 1/125-second exposure at ISO 100. The processing was done with Adobe Lightroom CC.
