A group of Upper School students participated in a field photography lesson in Madison Square Park in New York City on April 9.
The students took a series of photos after choosing one of several possible assignments, such as capturing portraits of strangers or focusing on architecture and objects in and around the park, says Upper School photography teacher Rachel Langosch, who oversaw the trip.
The group also toured the Penumbra Foundation, which brings together the art and science of photography through education, research and outreach programs. While there, the students heard a brief history of photography and created a tintype portrait. A tintype is a contemporary take on the 19th-century collodion wet plate process, according to Ms. Langosch.
