The first year students had to complete two black and white self portraits (one including their presence and one without) for their final project in Camera Techniques. They put in a great effort and displayed a lot of creativity. See below for some of the best images!

After a lecture on contemporary portraiture, the students in Camera Techniques I were given two hours to produce a black and white portrait of one of their classmates. Congratulations to the winning photographers: Julia Duffy (for her quirky environmental portrait of David) and Kelli Pace/Elizabeth Carter (for their creative magazine based concept). I’ve posted a few other honorable mentions below as well.

This past monday I split up my camera techniques class into groups and gave them an extra credit challenge. They had two hours to conceive, shoot, edit, and submit a black and white, halloween themed photo that included all group members. The results were both humorous, weird and creepy. After compiling votes from all photo faculty and staff, I’m proud to announce the winning group: Brian Hadden, Meredith Muntean, Michelle Maney, and Kelsey Simpson. The girls looked genuinely terrified of Brian, well done!

GTC Photo student Russell Stafford recently had the opportunity to photograph an Atlanta Falcons game from the sidelines. Instructor Tami Chappell has made it a tradition to provide the credentials to one hard working student each year. Russell was selected based on the high quality of his previously shot sports imagery. Here’s what Russell had to say about the experience:
“The experience was fun as expected. There is a definite challenge trying to keep up with the action. Football at that level is extremely fast paced. Knowing how to properly use the camera, with regards to autofocus settings and any other nuances of the camera, is a definite requirement. The ability of a professional sports photographer is to be commended.”
