In November 2008, students from Little Havana Institute High School in Miami, Florida, attended a National Geographic Photo Camp led by National Geographic contributing photographer Maggie Steber. For five days, the students photographed, edited, and designed a portrait of their natural world and the environmental issues facing their community. This gallery showcases the students' work.
Here, Photo Camp participant Christopher Flores captured a shot of a colorful local house in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami.
