Advanced photography class has started again, and it looks like it will be another good one. I was supposed to have six students, but two couldn’t make it.

We started outside, photographing my car, since it was relatively warm. I like to give the “painting with light” exercise when I can, for two reasons. One is that it gives unusual and exciting results, which gets their creative cogs turning, and the other is that it illustrates in a very obvious way how light accumulates on an image sensor.

It did eventually get cold (and I lent a fleece pullover and a blanket to two of the lesser-dressed), so we went inside and prowled the halls of the vo-tech, looking for images. They really caught fire creatively, photographing each other, themselves in mirrors, and all kinds of architecture.

It felt like a good session.
