New Work: Digital Photography 1

Let's hear it for the rookies!  All three sections of Digital Photography 1 are off to a fantastic start this semester.  Many of the students have passed the photography exam and have been out shooting several times already.  Hopefully the weather will hold out for several more weeks as well and remain sunny and temperate!

Though the beginning students are just getting started in their personal photographic journey, I am always amazed at the high level of technical ability within the first couple of weeks shooting.  Please enjoy this first gallery of images knowing that several more will be posted throughout the semester!

And, as always, if you recognize a student's name and like their work, be sure to tell them in person.  Everyone loves kudos!!

New Work: Digital Photography 2 & Media Technology

It is very hard to believe the fall semester is already half-way completed!  Regardless, the students currently enrolled in Digital Photography 2 and Media Technology: Workplace Experience continue to create some pretty amazing photography that I am continually proud to share with all of you.

This semester's Digital Photography 1 students are beginning to print off their first assignments and I will be sharing a selection from them next week...so, stay tuned.

And, as always, thank you for your continued support of the photography program at West.  Leaving a comment at the bottom of the post or sharing that you have viewed this gallery with the photographers goes a very long way!!
