Topeka West Photo Show at Wolfe's!

Images created by 20 Topeka West photography students have been chosen to be shown at Wolfe's Camera Shop (located at 7th & Kansas Ave. in downtown Topeka) starting May 2 and lasting throughout the summer!

Chad Sidesinger (an employee at Wolfe's and parent of Brett Sidesinger, a past advanced photography student) presented an opportunity to have Topeka West images showcased inside the store.  Working with Sondra Harkness, another Wolfe's employee, 20 images were chosen from those displayed on the Photosynthesis blog during this school year.  A varied selection of Digital Photography 1, Digital Photography 2, and Advanced Photography pieces have been chosen to represent our photography program during the May 2nd First Friday Art Walk.  Wolfe's will stay open late to accommodate those enjoying the early-evening activities.  Professional photographer Jean Hutchinson (Ottawa, Kansas) will be showing her work if students would like to discuss their mutual love of photography.

All Topeka West students, staff, faculty, and supporters of the arts are encouraged to come see the show (5 - 8 pm), and bring your credit/debit cards or checkbooks because each piece is for sale!!  See below for a small selection of the pieces that will be displayed:

New Work: Digital Photography 2 & Advanced Photography

So good!  So GOOD!!  Wow!  The Digital Photography 2 class and Advanced Photography classes participated last week in their most successful critiques this semester!  It was such an impressive display of images that I have decided to increase the number of images shown this time.  I just had to share the incredible imagery our students are producing.

ENJOY!!

New Work: Digital Photography 1

I am overly impressed with the progress that the Digital Photography 1 students are making this semester.  Their images show a wide range of creativity, craftsmanship, and diversity of subjects for such a small group of students.  I am excited to see what they have in store for the remainder of the semester!  As always, please enjoy this small selection of work and be sure to leave a comment or mention their image if you also have the student in class.   I am sure they would greatly appreciate the kudos!
