New Work: Digital Photography 2 & Media Technology

Just prior to Thanksgiving break the Digital Photography 2 and Media Technology classes participated in their third critique of the semester.  Many times some of the best images of the semester are presented at this critique.  Students are really on a roll and not yet freaking out about the end of the semester!

Once again I present to you 14 images created by many extremely talented photographers!  The highest levels of creativity and the wide-ranging experimentation in the field of photography (from darkroom techniques to film photography to long-exposure photography) are certainly evident in this outstanding gallery.  Please enjoy!!
