Portraits and Exploring the City

Hey followers of the blog, I’m Sydney Smith from San Diego, California. There are 3 Sydney’s in the program this year, so not to be confused with Sydney Doblin and Sydney Williams.

Today in class, we started digital photography finally!! This morning we had a lecture and slideshow of portrait photography, and then were introduced to our latest assignment: Collaborative Portraits. We were split into groups and each group was sent out t a different “neighborhood” in the city (The Lower East Side, Chinatown/Financial District, Chelsea/West Village, and The Upper West Side). It was 90 degrees and humid today, so we were very stressed and sticky during this entire excursion. When we returned to campus, we had a 3 hour open lab where we worked on photoshopping the photos we took today.

Stay tuned for more blog posts from my wonderful classmates!
