Tapestry Students @ CEPA

Tapestry High School and CEPA Gallery have a long history of collaboration and we were thrilled that eight talented students completed a three-day intensive learning here at CEPA in April 2015. The Tapestry visit was jam-packed with all things photography—pinhole photography, photograms, digital photography, Photoshop, strobe lighting, green screen and more! See some of the amazing work they created below.


Students chose a background photo  with the idea that they would superimpose a photo of themselves onto the background using Photoshop. They were photographed against a green screen in a pose conducive to the scene they chose.

Using digital cameras, students learned the elements of photography and then found and photographed them throughout the building.

Using digital SLR cameras, students used long time exposures during which they used flashlights, glow sticks or any light source to literally write or draw shapes, creating unique and striking images of moving color and light.

Using Photoshop, students created a self-portrait collage, starting with a profile photograph of themselves and filling it with text and images that tell us more about them.
