Prep Seminar: Digital Photography Workshop

Teacher: Grace Ann Leadbeater

In this photography workshop, each student completed a series inspired by themes surrounding family and home. Whether with a digital camera or cell phone camera, students further developed their photographic skills, utilizing light, shadow, and composition to delve into their perspectives. Students further pushed their perspectives through post-processing with photo editing applications, creating narratives that can only be told by them. A final collaborative photo zine celebrates how these unique narratives create a larger dialogue together about family and home.

    In my photo series, there are pictures with patterns and textures in objects that people overlook. When looking at ordinary things, I am filled with wonder. I look at the world in my own way and take pictures from weird angles and while in motion. I want to share my point of view and fill my audience with awe. This way, I can show people that rope, rock, moss, corrugated wood, and weeds can be very cool when captured from a different angle. I want people to be filled with the same wonder I am filled with when l discover these objects. The amazement I feel and try to capture is the texture, shape, and position of materials I find in nature. I want people to say, “Oh wow! I never noticed that before.” I want people to figure out what I have photographed, and most importantly, I want to inspire people to think about what they see in my photographs. At the end of the day, I am a noticer. In this fast-paced world, photography helps me to stop and smell the roses, and I hope my photographs will tame the pace of daily life for my viewers.

  • Lockdown by Izzy Brink
     
    Over the past few weeks I took a series of walks throughout the city, and as I walked I started to notice the differences between each neighborhood in how they reacted to the pandemic. The pictures were taken between 150th and 50th street, on (mostly) the west side of manhattan. I wanted to capture how different life has been ever since the pandemic started and how different places responded to the new lockdown life. I noticed, though, that the only area where it wasn’t drastically different was the Riverside Drive Highway. Some neighborhoods were deserted, almost like a ghost town, and others were crowded as ever. It was really interesting to see how much the city changed in only a few blocks and how each neighborhood seemed even more alienated since the pandemic began. It was really striking to walk around the city, since before the pandemic I would regularly travel all over New York and everything has changed so much. Taking
    pictures helped me realize, though, that just as much as I would like everything to go back to normal, there is still such a long time to go.

  • Childish Perspectives by Raleigh Gracia
     
    My photography series is basically something anyone can be inspired to recreate. I used personally meaningful objects around my houses to photograph, then edited it to look very abstract. I like editing my photos this way to show my audience something they wouldn’t imagine on their own from looking at these objects. For instance, from looking at a mirror you might not see what I showed you in my picture, a window revealing the beach and ocean. I like seeing things that aren’t there and I thought an audience would appreciate as well.

  • Food & Family by Marley Alburez
     
    My photo series conveys the meals people eat every day. Food is very important to me because in my house it is prepared with love. My father gets up early every Sunday to make delicious pancakes, and when we couldn’t go out to eat Ramen, my mother made her own version of the soup from scratch. My sister Ella always sets aside a piping hot cup of tea for me, and while Lucia never cooks, she will occasionally share a crispy chicken nugget. When I wake up to crispy croissants, I hear angels sing, and when cheesy quesadillas find their way into my mouth, I have entered heaven. I want to share the feelings and tastes of the food I love, with my audience. By documenting what I eat, I document who I am, and am documenting how I see the world around me.

  • Quarantine Views by Guadalupe Mejia Ospina
     
    For a long time, I was unable to understand the connection between all of the photos in my series. As far as I could tell they were rather unconnected. There were different tones, colors, and subjects. But I have come to understand that artwork is often a way of self-reflection and expression for the artist. You can almost always find the artist within the artwork. And you can find me in the unconnectedness, the various colors, tones, and subjects. I am messy and muddled internally and externally. I am untidy and leave things strewed throughout the house, yet my school binders, my backpack, my pencil cases, and my homework are all impeccable. I am a tankard of conflicting emotions that can all be expressed over a short period of time in rapid consequence. I am often baffled at how muddled my mind and emotions can be. This photo series is the embodiment of my perception of the world, of my mess. The different feelings I convey in each image reflect my perception of what was happening around me at the time. You could say that this series is a peek into the way a child, or at least, a 13 year old sees the world.

    For a long time, I was unable to understand the connection between all of the photos in my series. As far as I could tell they were rather unconnected. There were different tones, colors, and subjects. But I have come to understand that artwork is often a way of self-reflection and expression for the artist. You can almost always find the artist within the artwork. And you can find me in the unconnectedness, the various colors, tones, and subjects. I am messy and muddled internally and externally. I am untidy and leave things strewed throughout the house, yet my school binders, my backpack, my pencil cases, and my homework are all impeccable. I am a tankard of conflicting emotions that can all be expressed over a short period of time in rapid consequence. I am often baffled at how muddled my mind and emotions can be. This photo series is the embodiment of my perception of the world, of my mess. The different feelings I convey in each image reflect my perception of what was happening around me at the time. You could say that this series is a peek into the way a child, or at least, a 13 year old sees the world.
