Smoky Mountains Photo Challenge

My roommate made me this photo challenge for my trip to the Smoky Mountains for spring break. I recently got new cameras and wanted to start learning how to take pictures well, plus I wanted to add variety to the content! Below are the prompts and some pictures. I’m still learning how to take photos, but it was a lot of fun figuring stuff out!
