The weather was fantastic last week – the classes took advantage of this to go outside and experiment with bubble photography. Two in class labs were offered (students are always encouraged to come up with their own artistic interpretation of a topic as well): bubbles for blowing and seltzer and fruit.   We learned that bubbles sometimes require manual focus, that a breeze isn’t helpful and that the camera doesn’t always know best.


Working with Shadows

For this assignment, students studied shadows and figured out the shapes of shadows and how to best show them off.

Water Drops and Splashes

Last week photography class practiced focusing on moving water – both splashes and drops. The set up for capturing water drops had the potential to take up much digital storage space while students learned timing and shifting focal points. We then went outside to toss rocks in the stream.
