Photography has always been something people seem to be drawn to, especially today. Most phones have cameras built in and the quality of those cameras have been skyrocketing. They’re almost professional grade, why not put it to use and join Exposures Photography Club?
Exposures is run by Mr.Bayek in the Media Center every other Thursday. It’s a lot of fun and very engaging! Students are shown different techniques and then go on to take their own photos independently.
Before each meeting, everyone submits their photos on the club’s tumblr page. During each meeting, everyone views and discusses photos taken by the students in the group. Each photo is open to comments, constructive criticism, and compliments.
Every week the group comes up with a theme for their next series of photos. Everyone is encouraged to contribute an idea and everyone’s idea is welcome. Past themes have been black and white, macro, shadows, rule of thirds, and more.
Members are eager to share ideas for future themes and topics to discuss. Photography is different from art, its life, capturing a moment and freezing it in time. It’s interesting to see things through the photographer's eyes and get a sense for what they’re feeling in that moment. If photography interests you, you should try photography club.
