Workin’ on a little handwritten, snail mail goodie for our gallery donators.
St.John’s: Developing a New Perspective
Gallery Opening - Thursday, July 26th @ 7pm
500 East St.Johns Ave, ATX 78752
After almost 40 hours of volunteering, the kids made it to Friday and the afternoon festival. They helped, goofed off, and realized that through their service and leadership the camp proved successful.
They weren’t just recipients, each student pictured helped build something that mattered. Turns out that feeling’s worth all the hard work.
We did it!
Thank you guys for helping us reach our goal in just four days! If you’re a data nerd like me, you might be interested in the specifics of the campaign. Here’s some stats:
-169 people viewed the campaign 521 times
- 22 people donated ($23 average)
- 44% was raised in the first 24 hours.
In short, you guys are incredible. We’re hard at work planning the gallery that you made possible and we’ve got some exciting surprises in store as an added thanks.
We’re keeping the campaign open until the end because more money raised will go directly to the students. Specifically, we’ll work on featuring the photos in other parts of Austin (suggestions? let us know).
Attached is a picture from the last day of camp. The students were incredible leaders of their respective teams, and they’re looking forward to meeting this Thursday to celebrate, share their final photography projects, and plan the gallery.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. We’re honored that you made this possible.
Happy 4th of July. George Washington on the Constitution.
Wow. Just wow.
There’s relationship, spacing, strong lines, sharp colors, questions, implications. You can’t even tell Anna Maria’s holding the camera. This shot makes all the hard work worth it.
Vanessa’s an artist. Check the shadow, the contrasting patterns, the framing of the shot, and the lens angle.
The blur adds to the affect (and is my fault because we gave her a low megapixel camera).
Daniel’s a big fan of the rule of thirds, and he worked the tree right into the corner to give you a good contrast against the afternoon clouds.
Almost all our students are shooting horizontal 95% of the time. Annabel’s started using vertical more and she’s getting great (way better than me).
