PH 603 - The Language of Photography - Midterms

Mid terms ... ah mid-terms. Just when you think the pace is picking up and the assignments are getting demanding, you are suddenly thrown into the gladiator pit and asked to create 8 unique photographs. But not to fret, passing through the eternal fires is a necessary task, coming out of the pit unscathed or otherwise leaves you wise and confident for more to come.

Now on to the rules Igor
- Use whatever camera and accessories are at your disposal
- Use digital or analog darkroom techniques to manipulate your images. Not too much Photoshop though.
- Create photographs to the best of your ability and not just to satisfy the basic need.
- Submit prints in class for critique and evaluation.

Now on to our contenders

A photograph taken at dusk or dawn.

An exhibition galley called The Legion of Honor. Late in the evening the lit up structure is the center of attention. The parking line on the asphalt lead you the cast iron structure on the right which again takes you back to the building.
