First photos

The freshman students dove into their first photography assignment with enthusiasm. The assignment was created to help the students get comfortable with their digital SLRs and to encourage creativity in photography.

The assignment list was deceptively simple with 20 ideas ranging from cars to doorknobs. There was a class brainstorm session where the group was encouraged to build on the basic assignment and think about perspective and emotion that go with each image. The photos were surprising in a good way. The students did a great job shooting details, changing perspective and creating interest in their photos. As students learn about white balance and exposure the results will be even better.

The photos below are a fraction of the terrific images turned in by students along with the category the photos fit for the assignment.
