THE BOYS OF SUMMER
Each summer, RCC photography students in the Small Format Photography class have descended on area baseball and softball diamonds photographing local teams. The assignment, â€œBaseball,â€? has multiple parts, including game action images, the pitcher with the ball just off the fingers, and an Americana image. The assignment teaches students to photograph unpredictable and fast-paced action using long focal length lenses. They practice skills from other classes and lessons as they constantly have to make exposure adjustments and place themselves in the best position depending on the game situation. A big thank you to the Asheboro Copperheads for allowing our RCC students to photograph games for years!
