Over the summer, InsideOUT Writers partnered with East Los Angeles College (ELAC) to pilot a four-week “Intro to Photography” class for Alumni.   Led by Professor Mary-Linn Hughes, six Alumni learned basic photography skills and created portraits as a form of visual self-expression.  During the weekly two-hour sessions, Alumni learned how to operate the cameras as well as proper lighting and Adobe Photoshop techniques.  For their final projects, Alumni took turns as photographers and models, producing black-and-white portraits, now on display at IOW’s office.  Congratulations to Benjamin, Diana, Fernando, Gloria, Jessica and Sophie on a job well done!

 

Special thanks to Professor Hughes and ELAC for creating this amazing opportunity for our young people.
