Students were fortunate enough to participate in a Portrait Photography workshop with Venture Photography as one of the Discovery Culture Festival electives, in which they worked with Art Director Rick Reeder, and Digital Art Director Dawn Austin. Not only did the students get a chance to work in a professional photography studio, they learned about different lights, backgrounds, compositions and directions as well as the use of props and telling a story through an image. They also learned the process of retouching photos, where they explored how to creatively build up and give a photo character using gradients, colours and textures. It was an enjoyable and educational experience, and a huge thank you to Venture Photography for running this workshop.
