McDaniel College students got to know their surroundings a bit better through their camera lenses as the Modern Photography class took a photo “field trip” to downtown Westminster.
The campus is busier this month than in previous years thanks to a new requirement that freshmen take a “My Design” course over the college’s January term — although the 14 students in Modern Photography were mostly upperclassmen.
The photo tour on Thursday was a chance to collect photos for their final cumulative portfolio for the course.
When instructor Walter Calahan was a college student, film was expensive, and he wishes he could have documented the moments and fashions of the time. As a young person, it felt like things would stay the same way forever.
