Racing with Legos!!

Hyundai has just released a commercial showcasing their new Veloster Turbo racing on a landscape made entirely out of Legos!  The commercial was created using stop-motion photography...1000s of photographs shown in rapid succession.  I realize that this commercial doesn't have much to do about photography...but it was too fun not to share!!

New Work: Digital Photography 1

This semester marks a turning-point for the Topeka West photography program.  A new class has started titled Digital Photography 1.  All the same photography concepts learned in Photography 1 are being taught, but instead of using film and the dark rooms students are learning on a digital SLR and Adobe Photoshop.  Students are also encouraged to use their own digital point-and-shoot cameras or their cell phone cameras.  The idea is that art can be created on multiple digital platforms.

This semester's class is small (compared to my traditional Photography 1 classes) but, in time, many more sections of Digital Photography 1 will be offered.  So enjoy this small collection of images from a very unique class!
