Old Photography Assignments

I took a two photography classes while I was at Ringling and I must say they had quite the impact on me. A majority of the lighting knowledge that I use at work I owe to getting away from the computer and going hands on with a camera (and maybe some strobe lights too).

I took some pictures that I'm pretty happy with as well, however, for whatever reason, they slipped through the cracks of this blog.  So I decided to dig into the archives and share some of my old assignments.

My sophomore year, advertising and still life class:

This was taken in class with the assistance of Athena Torri.
It was a great opportunity to work with such a talented photographer.

For the final I chose to arrange and photograph still lives in the style of renaissance paintings

A few from my location lighting class, my senior year:

And lastly a couple of my friend Curtis, for whom a bad photo does not exist:

The class was my first time dabbling in portraiture.  I really enjoy it and I know I have a lot of room to grow.  In the future I hope to find more opportunities to work with very photogenic people.
