I really like what you all are doing with the photography challenge! Your images show creativity, great imagination and good photographic composition. Many of you are going outside of the theme and prompting ideas for other themes - meaning that you're helping form what we're doing, which is awesome. There is something missing from this exercise and that is taking it to the next level. We are a small community of artists - we need to learn from one another. That means we need to share and discuss our work.
That is why I wanted you to send me your images so that we can have a weekly conversation about what you're learning and discovering in photography. The only way we can have this discussion is to bring all of our images together so we can see and discuss the work. I'm going to try another way of getting that to happen on Monday during class.
This week's theme is texture. Think fabrics, exteriors of buildings, animal fur or skin, tree bark, etc. - there are many possibilities - be creative. Make sure that your photos are shot before end of class on Friday and submitted.
Fototime Site and Underclass Portraits
Congratulations to everyone who helped shoot photos of our 9th through 11th grade students. I keep getting positive comments from others in the school who see what you're doing with these photos. You can tell that students outside our program are impressed with your work. I'm happy to tell you that the CAT Pickering Fototime web site is now open for business. When I look at the photos on these web pages I'm amazed and proud of what my students can do.
