COMM 1316 News Photography, COMM 1318 Photography
The photos in this gallery are from students in COMM 1316 News Photography and COMM 1318 Photography this semester. These represent their first assignments. Their instructions were to find a “campus beauty shot”: “Something that would promote the school or show the beauty on campus if it were included on the school’s website. It could be a pretty tree, colorful pile of leaves, or a pattern that you find on the corner of a building. It could be a shot of how late afternoon light casts a glow over a bench. Look for an interesting angle.”
Students were required to submit caption information along with the photos. The only Photoshop editing used for these first assignments was cropping and tilting left or right if needed.
These are the best photos from each student. The students are proud and should be.
More to come as the semester gets underway.
