Fashion Photographer and ASMP (American Society for Media Photographers) Baltimore Chapter vice president Sean Scheidt teaches a workshop to Advanced Studio Photography (PHOTO 341) students. ​ Sean presented his work and talked to class about business of photography, working with clients, and building a supportive creative crew for fashion photo shoots. Students learned how to work with a model, and how to create interesting lighting scenarios for strong visual impact.

Elena Volkova’s Advanced Photography class visited the Maryland Historical Society. It is the oldest cultural institution in the state of Maryland. The society displays a large collection of objects and materials that reflect Maryland's diverse heritage.

During their visit, the students looked at 19th century images of Maryland, and early portraits of Baltimore and its residents. The trip was insightful to the students and provided them a better understanding of 19th century photography.

The students were able to view a rare object, a Mathew Brady Civil War book (top and bottom right). It is one of only 5 existing copies that remain today, the students were fortunate to see the book in person.
