More Holga Shots from WI

Here’s a final assortment of Holga scans from my time spent in WI on a mini photo retreat:

Many of these were attempts to show how a Holga crops the final image (as compared to what one sees through the viewfinder), but I was able to show proper comparisons to get my point across in this post, so these were just some extras I put together to share.

See more in my first post of Holga photos (which teaches more about how Holga’s plastic lens and viewfinder work), and in this post about my photo trip.

Another Office Move

This past school year, I had an adjunct office all to myself. I don't think that's happened before at Hamline University (or any other college I've taught at, for that matter). Near the end of last semester, I finally started "making it my own" by slowly adding prints to a bulletin board in the corner:

Well, I just moved into a new office, so I had to take my things down on that board. Maybe I'll get "settled in" a bit quicker in my new (shared) office so I can enjoy some student work / test prints / random imagery on the wall before having to take it down again.

Goodbye Room 190. You were smelly, had stained desks, were
always hot... but you were mine. I'll sort of miss you. Kinda of. Maybe.

I've been at Hamline for 6 full school years now, and I think I'm entering my 5th office. (I spent 1 or 2 years in each of the 2 different offices in that odd DMA "lounge" room in the basement, then 2 years down the hall in the basement, then a year in the office I just moved out of, and now I'm in my 5th space.)

My new office has a welcoming (blank) frame, and a place for you to leave me things:

And the office map down the hall still has me in my basement office from 3 semesters ago:

I'm REALLY not complaining. This is the adjunct life, and I love it. It's always an adventure!

Happy back-to-school!

Awesome Hamline Students

This past semester, a few brochures for Hamline University appeared on my office desk. I was happy/proud to see a few (QUALITY) recent students of mine inside it's 17 short pages. I teach all the photography courses at Hamline, but that's only 1 or 2 courses/semester, so I really don't see that much of the student body each semester (about 0.75% to 1.5%).

Tyler even has a camera in hand! Nice!

Sophie and Hanna on the same page.

Waving the pom pom under the speech bubble on the back cover is another familiar face.

Nice work, students!
