Class Field Trip yields photos and prizes

Last week we changed it up in class. J337, Photovisual Communications, took a field trip. We started at the Horseshoe in the center of campus. Students had 75 minutes, the entire class time, to take photos, edit and turn them in. It was a gorgeous spring day, and we were all happy to get out of the Coliseum classroom.

Students had several themes they could photograph. I was really impressed with students’ images taken in such a short time.

Yesterday local photographer Jeff Blake came to class to critique their images. He gave away prizes for the best image in each category.

And the winners are…

1- Michael Tolbert (This photo also won Best in Show. Way to go Michael!)
2- Anne Almand
3- Jenn Drozd
HM- Krystina Simms
