GTC Photography Hosts Judging for International Professional Photography Competition

IMG_20140806_082648_1GTC Photo is hosting the judging for the Professional Photographer’s of America 2014 International Print Competition from August 3rd through 8th, drawing more than 50 professional photographers to campus to view and critique more than 5,000 entries.

GTC Photography students will be providing assistance during the judging process, adding to their professional and educational experience.

The PPA is an international, non-profit association for professional photographers, based in Atlanta, which exists to assist its 27,000 members in achieving their professional, artistic and fraternal goals; to promote public awareness of the profession; and to advance the making of images in all of its disciplines as an art, a science and a visual recorder of history.


Heavy Metal!

Our Commercial I students were tasked with doing a studio shoot of a metallic object this past week.  Check out some of the best images!

Science Works!

Last night, Gwinnett Tech hosted “Science Works” as part of the Atlanta Science Festival.  We helped the participants create photos using a technique called “Painting with Light” that involves using long exposures and a variety of fun light sources (flashlights, lightsabers, etc.).  Thanks to everyone who stopped by to give it a try, we hope you had fun!

(P.S. If you look closely you will be able to spot Beeker and Dr. Bunsen from the Muppets as well as Chopper from the Gwinnett Braves!)

Alumni Focus: Shooting in Color

2013 graduate Bill Lofton recently had the chance to shoot several marathons across the south and was nice enough to share some of his images with us.  Here’s what he had to say about the experience:

“I love the travel and meeting lots…. of different people. So far I have been to Savannah, Charlotte, and will be in Nashville this spring. Also, I have managed to catch some classmates (Nick Smith and Charity Atkins) at marathons as you can see.  Thanks for the knowledge that you and all the instructors have given me, it has definitely changed my life and I am livin’ the dream.”
