These are a few photos taken during class by different students. Some are examples of exploring light. How does indoor light using studio lamps differ from outdoor light? Some are explorations of composition and point of view. What is a worm's eye view? (image taken from below). What is a bird's eye view? (image taken from above). How does that affect the photographic message? Also, how can an image be framed in an interesting way? Students were also introduced the concept of the rule of thirds (which they renamed the "third rule.") See if you can anwer these questions yourself as you look at our gallery-in-process! Enjoy!

Photographs are by: Essence (2), Albrina, Asma, Jackie (2), Frantzia and Angie, repectively.
