Quick Photo from a New Exhibition Space

So the CVA Faculty Exhibition that I mentioned in my last post is hung and ready to open in it's new (temporary) space. Here's a quick photo I snapped of some of the work in the show at the Blair Arcade:

Come check it out! The new student lounge has been turned into a gallery while the Western Building is finishing up it's remodel. What a good way to show off the new CVA student lounge!

Too bad this shirt is sold out. I'd wear this. A lot.

Holga Photos from Stouts Island

I got my film processed last week, and scanned some negatives over the last 2 days. These photos don't fit any body of work of mine, but they are just "cute" photos that I made while teaching a photo class on Stouts Island.

I could use your help: let me know your opinion on which image you'd like to see printed larger in the CVA Faculty Exhibition at the end of this month. I'm thinking about using one of these images. Leave a comment on which photo you like the best. Note: the "Pool Balls" photo is probably too blurry to print large.

(Oh, and as you'll see by the first 5 or 6 images, I was really drawn to all of the adirondack chairs all over the island. Sorry for the monotony.)

"Adirondack in the Boat House"

"Adirondack and Cedar Lake"

"Behind the Garden House"

"Adirondacks and Raspberry Bushes"

"Row of Adirondacks"


"Looking Across the Island"

"Pool Balls"

"Backflip Off the Raft"

One of my students got a photo of me working with a family of kids on the island. Mike made this photo of me treading water while I was making a photo with my Holga:

Any thoughts on which photo you'd like to see printed larger? (Besides Mike's photo.)

Intro to Digital Photo on a Island in WI

A few weeks ago I spent 5 days on a small island in WI. I was teaching a group of 10 adults who signed up to take a short "intro to digital photo" class through the College of Visual Arts.

My students and I after our last dinner on the island

I'm currently scanning some negatives of some photos I made on the island, so I'll be posting those shortly. In the meantime, here are some of my giant Post-It Notes around our classroom with some of my photo notes from the class on them. If you know something about photography, you'll be able to decipher most of these:

Basic camera operation

Some digital camera issues and settings

White balance, drive modes, and zooming

File size, compression, jpg vs raw

The START of the Photoshop notes before just jumping right in

Back with some images from the island shortly.
