New Photo Studio for Triple Exposure
Over the past week, Triple Exposure has been working to transform a newly vacant classroom into a simple studio for the photography students here at TYO. Students from the basic photography classes inaugurated the studio on Monday, applying what they learned in the day's lessons on composition. They photographed random objects collected from across the TYO campus, remembering to consider focal points, negative and positive space, and leading lines.
As part of the composition activity, students were also asked to experiment with macrophotography---taking photographs of objects at incredibly close range. This forced students to consider what was important about the object and focus in on that single feature. Weighing the relative importance of each element of a photograph is quickly becoming a natural habit for our basic photography students. We're looking forward to more experimentation with composition and style in the new photo studio.
