Photography, Creativity, and Math
In our December 2022 Say Cheese box, Mrs. Baldon tells us how math was always presented to her as fun. From a very young age, her dad, who was also a math major, would play games and do puzzles with her, and math would show up. She shares how she started a job in advertising and then talks about her career as a photographer and how math is a part of both.
