The Camera is the Lens of the Soul by Cara D.

Photography is definitely one of the best classes I’ve taken this year.  Whether snapping random pictures around the OES campus or setting up a backdrop to create a professional photo-shoot, I always have fun in the class.  However, photography is not all playing around.  We use manual cameras, which means we actually have to develop film and use an enlarger to project the negatives, the entire process of which you’ll learn in this class. Yes, a lot of time in the dark room is required…. to develop pictures!  Each project helps to learn photography techniques and different ways to use your camera.  For our upcoming project, we are working on recreating famous images from pop culture and art history.  I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!  Here is a picture from a shoot I did with Lauren. It was a ton of fun and I would definitely consider taking this class again!
