ISU Photo students in the Photo Communication class learning how to reflect light using the versatile 5-in-1 reflector kit. Perfect autumn afternoon to be out on campus photographing!

My Photo Communication class is working through a module on landscape and environmental photography. So, we took to the field and worked on panos and close-ups at Chesterfield, an abandoned Mormon settlement from the late 1890s. On the way back to Lava Hot Springs for dinner, we encountered a young bull moose in the middle of the road. A van full of photographers and no one had a camera ready! After a few moments, I managed to grab my small P&S Fuji and captured a couple of shots of him in the field next to the road. Afterwards, we went to the Chuck Wagon in Lava Hot Springs for a bite to eat. Great afternoon with great students!
Here’s some shots of my current Photo Comm class out on the quad at ISU practicing their panoramic photography skills. Next week we’ll be out in the fields of Caribou County working on more panos, landscapes, and deadpan shots at an old ghost town.
Earlier this week the Photo Communication class, along with some Advanced Photo students, headed up to the Mormon ghost town of Chesterfield. Although the class was tasked with creating panoramic views of this abandoned site, many students included close-up and architectural views as well. Here’s some of the class hard at work….or at play??? Enjoy!
Today’s lab session was held over in our Photo Services studio. We worked on low-key portrait lighting as a dramatic departure from traditional portraiture lighting. Below are some samples from the demo, along with a lighting diagram.
Today my Photo Communication class was given their studio orientation at the University’s Photo Services studio. We are fortunate to have their studio open to our students, since we have no actual studio dedicated to our Photo Media program. Below are a few snapshots of my students listing to the staff photographer explain using the flash equipment.
