Photo for the Non Photographers

(November 11 2009) Written by: Blenda Luong in Coursework, Institute Requirements, Student Life

Hey guys! This quarter flew by... with exception of this week. Week 10 has been really stressful, but I'm getting by!

So last weekend I went for a long weekend to visit my friend and also completed my final assignment for one of my studio elective class,
Photo for the Non-Photo Majors. Which by the way I think everyone should take! It can count as a studio elective for those in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences OR an open elective for all other majors on campus! So ANYONE can take this class, my class was filled with engineers, business, and computer science students. Also, you don't have to have a an SLR camera, you can rent all equiptment you need for class from the cage.

Anyways, for my final concentration, since I love architecture and design so much, I decided to take photographs of buildings and details of building. But I wanted to shoot these photos with a little twist, by showing buildings and details of buildings through the means of reflection. I also wanted to keep the pictures black and white because I believe that composition and form should be the focal point not color or materials. Also, NYC was the perfect place for my concentration. :)

Soo check out my pictures, crits or comments would be awesome, but I'm letting you know I am NOT a photographer...so don't judge me too harshly!

    Thanks Emily! Who do you have? It will be awesome. :)

    Also,The class I took you can use film or digital, if you use film you get it developed yourself at school or from a store like Target. But there is another class called [u]Still Photo [/u]which is also for Non Majors,you are mainly in the dark room developing pictures. :) Hope that answers your question
