When I was still majoring in photojournalism I worked on a photo essay about RIT’s Aviation Club (which I think isnt around any more). The idea of the project was to show people what the Aviation Club was and what they were working on. Their project was building a flight simulator for last 2010′s Imagine RIT. Not only did I want to focus on the progression of the flight simulator being built, but also each members drive for being there and the role they played in in building the simulator. Most of the project was research and interviewing. The photos were a mix of the people in the club, the progression of the flight simulator and the actions that the members had to take to get the simulator done. This is one of the strongest images I had in my opinion it really shows how the club worked. In the foreground is one of the engineering students work on the physical side of the simulator and in the background you can see one of the programming students working on her computer, and in the very back is the leader of the club pointing keeping people organized. I dont think they ever finished the simulator.
