The Digital Photography Students of the Germantown High School will be exhibiting photographs inspired by the work of Master Photographer Edward Weston, through the month of November, at the Germantown Library
With the guidance of the new Art teacher at the High School, Mrs. Levy, students employed chiaroscuro (dramatic lighting created by using a single light source) to photograph exquisite object studies of shells, fruit, perfume bottles and light bulbs. Students used their new laptops, just distributed by the district, to refine and enhance the images in Photoshop Elements.
Please stop by the Adult Fiction section, and see these elegant and serene student artworks.
