Fly Fishing 101

Today I'm showing students in my Digital Photography class at Milligan how to make poster frames in Photoshop. It's a great way to display your work, add a quote or a title - and plus, they make very nice Christmas gifts! This is a photo of Milligan student Ben Taylor that I took this summer on the South Holston River. Ben and Frank are teaching a house course this spring at Milligan on Fly Fishing. In case you're not familiar with house courses...A house course gives students the opportunity to teach a one-credit hour course under the supervision of a professor -- the students taking the course do so on a pass/fail basis (no grades). However, the student teaching the course gets 2 credit hours and an actual grade. It's a wonderful concept -- the students who teach gain experience and a deeper knowledge of their subject -- and their students in turn get the opportunity to explore unique subjects. Besides Fly Fishing, this semester's list of house courses includes: Practical Photography, Serving in Brokenness, Art History: Step by Step, From Milligan to the Medical Field, and Basic Automotive Mechanics.
