Student photo exhibit in Kern Building throughout April

April 05, 2010

An exhibit of the best work from photojournalism students in the College of Communications runs throughout April in Kern Building on Penn State's University Park campus.

"ComPhoto 2010" includes images ranging from breaking news and personality profiles to special events on campus and Penn State sports. Twenty-two photos from more than a dozen students are part of the exhibition, which was organized by senior lecturer John Beale for the second year in a row.

Four courses comprise the core of the photojournalism program in the College of Communications, and upper-level students may put together plans for independent study. Along with class assignments, numerous opportunities exist for students to obtain hands-on experience.

To complete their assignments, students have access to University-owned single lens reflex digital cameras. In addition, through a program sponsored by Nikon, students in advanced classes use a pool of professional-grade cameras and specialty lenses.
