One of the pleasures of teaching is mentoring students to explore, take some risks and hopefully see the world differently.
Have you ever noticed in the weekly television guide the promotion of culinary cooking shows featuring food and stern-looking chefs staring at each other? Why even PBS has its own instructional food program.
Have you ever experienced the thrill of reading a digital camera manual? You know, the one that is referenced in the camera box with an attached web address to get the user’s manual on-line.
Several months ago Dan Thiessen, director of the Walla Walla Community College Wine Country Culinary Institute, asked me to share some thoughts regarding digital food photography wth his student chefs in his Culinary Trends Class.
As I was sipping my early morning coffee and preparing my Quest class notes on my iPad, I glanced down at the coffee cup and noticed a surface reflection of my desk light bouncing at me.
As a professional photographer, I have been intrigued by the Quest Program offered by Walla Walla Community College. Membership is for those over 50 years old seeking “Adventures In Learning.”
Everyone who has raised a family has probably heard the words, “Are we there yet?”
This summer our grandson, Cameron, spent two weeks with us in Walla Walla and I wondered what a 12-year-old would like to photograph.
I will admit I was scared when my wife and I and our 12-year-old grandson recently embarked on a two week trek through Oregon and Western Washington without my DSLR camera. The only camera I would have for the entire trip would be my new iPad.
I just finished teaching a five-week Quest photography class at Walla Walla Community College for those who have attained the age of 50 years and up.
