Special Projects: Storytelling

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

I don't think I've mentioned it yet in this blog, but in addition to Beginning Digital and Advanced Digital, I teach a class called Special Projects Digital Photography at OCC in Royal Oak. Before I began teaching the course, it was primarily an independent-study format. I added a twist to that by creating the option of participating in a book project that's based on a single theme elected by the students. Then, at the end of the semester, I design and assemble the book and boom–they're published photographers. It's really an opportunity that I think I would've loved to participate in at CCS, though the closest I got to that was being in a poster our senior year. Well, long story short we're now on Issue 6: Storytelling and the course has been a brilliant success. And I'm now a publisher, apparently!

Last night a few students and I had an interview with Elizabeth Katz of The Daily Tribune. If you're in Oakland County, keep your eyes peeled for us in the next week or so. I'll post a link when it goes online. We've also had past write-ups in the Metro Times and The Mirror. To view all the current issues of Special Projects check out: www.lulu.com/specialprojects. All issues are sold at-cost and are free to download.

UPDATE 9.1.08
The article for the Daily Tribune was published last weekend. Check it out here. Thanks again to Elizabeth Katz for her interest!

Hops!

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

I was finally able to photograph the hops grown by Rex Halfpenny from the Michigan Beer Guide this past Wednesday, thus concluding my craft beer photo journey. The photos above are a few of my fav's. I am now currently in the process of editing the final selection which will be printed on canvas and exhibited at Bastone Brewery, Royal Oak this fall. Thanks again to Rex for all his help in this project! I think it goes without saying that if you need to know anything about beer in Michigan, the Michigan Beer Guide is a fabulous source.
