The MHS Photo Club is one of many different options students have to learn and grow outside the classroom as well as an opportunity to find their niche’ at Messalonskee.
Color is just one of the things which people actually see differently—perceptions also shift as people observe the same objects, yet see them differently. To that end, photography is one way of learning to see—and to play with light and form, color and texture, and more—reframing even the ordinary in new ways. Messalonskee High School’s Photo Club has been working on creating photos for a couple of displays. The first display, on the windows lining the hallway outside the Library, is a variety of photos of animals and pets. The second exhibit, which is on display in downtown Oakland at the Camden National Bank on Main Street—and in the attached slideshow—is primarily a blend of the students’ best nature photos.
Upcoming plans include a field trip on Spring Fling Day in May, out to the alpaca farm in Sidney. New members are always welcome! Questions, contact Photo Club Advisor, Kiri Guyaz at MHS Library.
