Students capture 'just one minute'

University Park, Pa. -- For one minute and one minute only on Wednesday, April 8, Penn State students under photojournalism lecturer John Beale investigated the many goings-on that take place in the Pattee and Paterno Libraries on the University Park campus.

Two sections of the course participated in the assignment, which introduced the concept of an immediate turnout deadline. Each class was given a short amount of time to search the facilities for an interesting scene, take their photos at between 10 and 10:01 a.m. or 2:10 and 2:11 p.m. during their respective classes, and have the photos edited, captioned and submitted within 40 minutes. Students selected their single best photo to not only document a vast and intricate building, but also to learn the extremes of a photojournalism assignment.
