Photography and Sabbatical

Photo (and graphics and art and journalism) instructor Curtis Corlew (who's writing this in the third person for no good reason) will be on sabbatical Spring 2009. But fear not, the very able Scott Wreyford will teach the photography and Photoshop classes.

Curtis will return Fall 2009, all refreshed and smarter for his time at school at CSUEB.
He (again, meaning me) will attempt to add a few things to this blog anyway, but, you know how that might go.

The photo is from a Fall 2008 Photo II class field trip to Mare Island to try some light painting.

2D design values

closeup value assignment, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. This extreme detail is from Shelly Boyd's self portrait. Students in Dawn Black's 2D design class painted nine different values on separate pieces of paper, cut varied shapes and then assembled them into portraits. Shelly's whole piece is below.

Books by photography students

The final project for LMC Photo II students is to create a book on a unified concept. These small posters are mock-ups — hung from string with extra-cute tiny clothespins on level 3 of the college complex— of the larger posters that might appear in bookstores promoting their self-published books.

Light and high school students

Six local high schools visited us for Career Focus Friday. We gave them a tour of the art and graphics areas, but thought it would be better to demonstrate what we do, and let them have a little fun. We set up a makeshift studio with beautiful portrait light at one end and "monster light" at the other. We made a few demonstration photos, then let them go to town with their camera phones. I think we were a hit.
