Photography at Balloon Fest
Students in the Photography Course at PIRCTC were given the assignment to attend the Crown of Maine Balloon Festival in Presque Isle in late August. While at the festival students captured images that were quite remarkable for their first weeks in the class. Upon returning to the classroom the following week, students edited their photos a bit using the introductory features of Adobe Photoshop and submitted their photographs to the Amateur Photo Contest that the festival sponsors. Students in the class earned first, second, and third place finishes. Ellie Goheen placed first in the category. Jillian Mandeville placed second, and Maddison Cleaves earned third place. Mrs. White said that she is “quite excited to see how the students will grow throughout the school year.” Each of the students that placed in the contest will receive a certificate and cash prize from the festival. Seen here are the photos they submitted.
