Photography Class welcomes Ronda Smith !!

"Ronda Smith is a professional photographer from New York. This was her second year coming to Secaucus high school to lecture Mrs. DiOrio's photography and graphic design classes. As an Advanced photo student I got to meet Rhonda twice. She's an excellent photographer with an awesome personality. Ronda also has her own company where you can purchase her custom made pillows! When Rhonda came to speak to the advanced photo class and critiqued everyone's work. It was really cool to see a professional give you some tips. Ronda showed the class some behind the scene footage at her photoshoots - and how she sets everything up to get the perfect shot. Throughout the lecture she gave a tutorial of the program she uses to design and edit her work. As a student at Secaucus high school, I think Ronda Smith was an inspiration to anyone going into the photography field."
