Hey guys. We just wanted to let you know that we are currently experimenting with the website and if you see odd changes in the website appearance or function, please email Jon at firstname.lastname@example.org or Matt at email@example.com. If you are interested in obtaining an firstname.lastname@example.org email address, once again ask either Jon or Matt and we will set one up for you. The site is being upgraded and moved around, and we are trying to get forums and message boards up and running so that we can have conversations online. As we plan to make this site public, We are going to make a private page for members only. Please email Jon or Matt if you have any questions. Thank you.

Ms. Besozzi informed us that this week’s assignment is to take pictures of strangers. She also shared with us some techniques on how to successfully accomplish this, from obscurity to proximity. In relation to this, I just recently received the newest issue of the Photojojo newsletter (a wonderful free and weekly read I might add), which discusses the rights of photographers and what they can and cannot do to get that perfect shot. Since we’re on the topic of taking snaps of strangers, the following tidbit is present:
V. People can be photographed if they are in public (without their consent) unless they have secluded themselves and can expect a reasonable degree of privacy. Kids swimming in a fountain? Okay. Somebody entering their PIN at the ATM? Not okay.
Sounds like the law is in our favor on this one. Basically, you can take pictures of people in public, even without their consent, as long as that photograph does not infringe on their privacy. Easy enough, right? And just to be safe, make sure you print out carry a copy of The Photographer’s Right with you so you have a leg to stand on in case you get challenged. So, take a quick a glance at the article over at Photojojo to learn your rights, and I hope to see many great strangers next week. I hear that one is stranger than the next!

After a bit of work last night, Jon and I purchased a “dot-com” name for the site. The name we purchased is RFKPhoto.com.
Don’t worry about paying me or anything, I got this site for a good deal of only $7.15. After a few more months of the site, I hope to completely switch to dedicated hosting. Many of students in out school have cameras and even if they are not so “talented”, they should join the club. Tell your friends and maybe put up a bit more signs and we could possible have more meetings than every two weeks. With the amount of website experience that Jon and I have, we should have no problem even making a few things I hope for.
1. A photo uploading tool (similar to Flickr or Photobucket) so that we can keep the photos under our name
2. A more organized and larger photo community, not made of only RFK students but of other people
3. A porfolio for each member, consisting of photo’s personal preferences and so on..
Also, I was wondering if the school would be willing to pay any funding for monthly hosting. If not, we might have to a take a small collection of 2 dollars per member to keep it all going.

Suggestion: Think Still Life using extreme lighting conditions. For example, bright light at an angle to form high contrast and shadows.
Be creative. Think outside the box, or carton if you will…
