. The week began with a photographic scavenger hunt for images demonstrating various qualities of light and shadow and how light interacts with subjects. Then students learned about historical approaches to portraiture and were challenged to make portraits and self-portraits with deliberate consideration of lighting and composition, as well as mood. Students were then challenged to produce fine art photographs using only campus settings and props selected randomly. From the domain of fine art students then turned their attention to various methods of photographing through the microscope. They learned that tools used primarily for scientific photography can also be used to create beautiful art. On day four the students experimented with light painting and high-speed photography in the studio. Once they had created a body of work, they were taught how to select and sequence their work for publication in this book. During the final afternoon of the week, all the students and faculty came back together to finalize the content of the book. We hope you enjoy looking at this collection of the best images made during the RIT Summer Photography Workshop 2018.
