Santa Barbara Middle School Photographers Get Big Picture Show

Samy's Camera hosts photography class' digital display

Students from Santa Barbara Middle School have developed quite an eye for photography. Thanks to the sponsorships of some local businesses, their efforts have been rewarded with a premier display at Samy’s Camera, 614 Chapala St.

“It is quite an honor for students this age (eighth- and ninth-graders) to have their work displayed in public and at such a well-respected camera store,” said Lori Rafferty, their electives teacher and a professional photojournalist.

The exhibit, on display through the summer, is on the wall to the left through the main door from the back parking lot.

It is made possible by sponsorship from Samy’s Camera, Village Properties Teachers Fund, Ken Donnelly and Lotusland.

Most of the photos were taken with Nikon D40 cameras and printed with an Epson 2200 printer. Rafferty said the spring-term class emphasized learning the art of “seeing” along with the basics of digital photography.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
