Photographs by Wofford students on exhibit

February 8, 2007

Spartanburg, S.C. – Wofford College is hosting a photographic exhibit by Wofford students, to be on display through March 11.

“Digital Darkroom” features photographs taken during Dr. David Whisnant’s Interim class of the same name. The photographs will be on exhibit in the Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery in the Raines Center. Hours for the gallery are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday; noon to 6 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 9 p.m. Sunday.

When film was the dominant photographic medium, working with photographs in a darkroom was an expensive and difficult process, but now, with digital photography, creatively modifying digital images is much easier to do with modern image-processing software. In the Digital Darkroom Interim class, students learned how to enhance and modify their own digital images using one such image-processing program, Adobe Photoshop Elements.

This exhibit features the photographs of: Kyle Behrendt, Andrew Bellebaum, Michelle Boykin, Christopher Brune, Lori Comer, Jessie Davis, Kristen DeYoung, Sarah Handelman, Joshua Harris, Matthew Low, Sammy Nassri, Matthew O’Connor, Ashley Page, Caitlin Richardson, Alexia Ridenour, Kenneth Rogers, Adam Sheehan, Bernadette Sikes, Pat Smith, Matthew Watts, Jennifer Weurding and Caren Wilmot.

Whisnant is vice president for technology at Wofford.

Photographs from the exhibit can be found on the Wofford Web site at www.wofford.edu/sandorTeszlerLibrary/content.aspx?id=24070.
