American Students Aix

July 4, 2010

Liz and Michael by Bridgett O'Carroll

Here’s some student work from our first critique. Liz, in Bridgett’s picture above, tried to get into my class, but it was already full. Then, she dropped her camera and decided she liked the pictures created with the shattered glass of her UV filter. She’s a student who adjusts well to adversity.

Speak about a student who can adjust in the face of adversity, Julia made this one on the street near our classroom. I should have printed it smaller.

Virginia's Heart by Michael Habermann

Michael’s lovely picture of Virginia is a good reminder of the beauty to be found through photography.

Boats by Virginia Hill

Virginia also knows beauty, even though she included a duck in the bottom of the frame.

It is so wonderful how almost all my students wear dresses and skirts daily. Aix can be casual, yet it feels better when one looks great. For me, I walk around as if cast in a “new wave” French film circa 1965; the dresses help with the illusion.

I’m calling this post Ameican Students Aix in reference to a great photo blog called American Suburb X. Check it out.

    Bravo Frank,

    I love the images. It appears as if these students have a real grasp on composition and the use of digital cameras. It is very rewarding to see students with this much photographic knowledge. Congrats on holding an educational position there. That is a mere, vast dream that I hold.

    BEst of luck for the remaining time in the classroom. Hope youre enjoying your stay.

    Thanks, Jeff. I’ll make sure my students see your remarks. You also inspire me to do another post of student work.

    The students are doing great work! I especially love Boats, Liz and Michael, and Julia in a bar, but they are all wonderful! It looks like you are all having a grand time together too.
