Louie Palu, an award winning documentary photographer and filmmaker, known for his work examining social political issues such as human rights, conflict and poverty.
Palu showed his latest documentary, “Road Through War” a road trip along the front lines of the war in Ukraine, and talked to the Photojournalism class and first year students about looking at old ideas in a new way, story telling and preparing for reportage in dangerous environments.
PJ class drone check out. Which way does Dan want the drone to go?
Students found a Cicada, so we broke out the Canon 100mm Macro and ring flash. Remote second flash in back and a gold reflector.
My multimedia class works an a 3 light interview set-up.
Straight out of the camera. The photojournalism class had a on location lab shooting “sportstraits” or sports portraits. This is my demo of a CrossFit athlete, despite equipment issues, I am happy with my image despite not shooting with lights but once or twice a year. PS since my students look at my blog, this is a B+ or A- image, you can do better!
The commercial class had a fashion shoot lab, 5 separate stations with models. I am not sure why Nicole is using ProFoto lights but an iPhone as a modeling light ; )
First year head shot day – this is a small selection. Interesting fact: this year’s class is slightly more than 1/3 male, a huge increase from last couple of years. Most of my friends who teach in colleges are seeing the same thing, classes with a majority of females.
The photojournalism class practices eclipse settings.
Outside my office window, concrete is starting to go down. RCC Photography Renovations.
First day of Photojournalism I class.
