FORT DODGE - On Thursday, March 8, two groups of approximately 20 Fort Dodge Senior High School students, led by photography instructor John McBride, toured the Iowa Central Photography studio and facilities. The students were shown the lighting and set-up procedures for both portraiture and commercial product photography. Students also toured the Photography Set and Prop Design studio, and observed the process of creating individualized backgrounds and posing props.
“I think the kids were genuinely impressed with our facilities, as well as the digital photographic techniques being advanced here at Iowa Central. It was a pleasure to have them visit, and see what Iowa Central has to offer in state-of-the-art photographic education” said Howard Haase, Iowa Central Photography Instructor.
Tours of Iowa Central’s career based photography facilities are available by appointment to any interested groups or individuals. For more information, contact Department Secretary Joanne Gruver at 515-574-1191.
