Opportunity Knocked

Not only a budding talent but also a beautiful young lady, Trimble posed for this casual portrait, which fit well with the talk I was giving about the difference between posed and candid images, and the value of both.

After a bit of classroom discussion about composition and perspective, the class and I stepped outside for a short time to explore those concepts. Since it was so hot, we headed back indoors fairly quickly, and on the way, we caught sight of art student Britni Trimble, who was painting in the Alla Prima style using her feet. It was an nice opportunity for my students and me to shoot another piece in photojournalistic style, and it ended up making pretty good pictures. Trimble was a complete natural in front of the camera.

Trimble dips her toes into a bucket of paint to create an abstract painting in the Alla Prima style; she had her canvas spread on a sidewalk in a shady spot near the building where I teach.
