Yesterday after reshooting my final project, Jonathan and Alyssa helped me with my view camera assignment for this week. I had to shoot portraits, and instead of messing with film I thought I would check out one of the tilt shift lenses from the school. I am so lucky and thankful that we have a great photography program! We are sponsored by Nikon, Bron Color, Profoto, Hasselblad, leaf, and hopefully Cannon soon. Being sponsored by huge photography companies make it possible to get to know new gear that I would never normally have the resources to learn. They lend out gear to us and we get to check it out kind of like a library system...without it I would probably have no knowledge of any of the systems because they are so expensive. In order to make this happen, we have to meet a lot of people who are in the industry and let them know about our program. All of the work in this aspect is done by the head of the department, John Latimer. Because of John we get to meet a lot of really interesting people in the industry! An example of this is in New York we all had the chance to meet Jaques Bron (the owner of Bron Color)! It was such a neat experience. He was kind of hard to understand since he is Swedish, but he is such a sweet man! I'm jealous of the kids that are going on the Italy trip this summer because they are getting the opportunity to see the Bron Color headquarters and get a personal tour from Jaques. Anyway, I had fun getting to use the 24mm Nikon tilt shift for the first time! Here is the final result:
