This fall, students in Heather Gilbert’s Digital Photography class were tasked with photographing city hall. “Some of the students had never been inside City Hall and they were surprised to see how beautiful it is. They were allowed to go anywhere and the assignment was to focus on angles and textures,” Heather said about the project. Students were tasked with taking interesting shots throughout the 105-year-old building before digitally editing the photos into black and white and increasing the contrast of their pictures to emphasize texture and value.

As part of the course, students have also photographed the waterfront, the Portland farmer’s market, Tommy’s Park and the “graffiti wall” on Exchange Street.
