Photography field trip

SF MOMA trip
I was a might depressed that out of the large group that promised to come on our field trip to San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art only two actually showed up. But maybe quality is better than quantity. We looked at the Henri Cartier-Bresson retrospective as well as "Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance, and the Camera Since 1870." Both were filled with interesting work. We even had time to go through the Anniversary Show. Extra credit for attendees, shame and frowns for the ones who bailed on us.

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.

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.

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.
