We have just finished our General Education block in Photography. The Photography class gave us a creative balance to the regular academic life (time spent outside the classrooms e.g. in nature; and for one’s personal development). It was a nice change to have a subject, which was creative and artistic (compared to the “everyday academic” topics). Mr. Starsmore was highly appreciated by the class as a competent and knowledgeable lecturer with an interactive and collaborative teaching style.
In the last three weeks we have been given several themes to take pictures of. It was at times challenging to capture just the right image at the right moment – taking into account different angles, the composition of the photograph, reflections of sunlight etc. To provide you with a better overview, here are a few of the themes we worked with: “Shadow”; “Reflection”; “Color/Market”; “Water”; “Journey”; “Autumn”; “Antique” or “Self-Portrait”.
As the General Education course was taught during a three-week block, no other classes were scheduled during this time so we had the possibility to have a “breather” before the final exams, which are going to take place in four weeks time.
Looking forward sending you a new blog post soon!
