Posting final grades for the semester

February 12th, 2012

By Roberto Rosales

Finished grading papers for my photojournalism class at UNM!

Thank you God for sending a few students who at least put down their iPhones while I spoke about the rule of thirds or gathering sound while covering an assignment. This was a tough class just because it was taught once a week and it meant talking or discussing work for 2 1/2 hours every Tuesday. The beginning part of the semester developed into the “OK, let’s see who likes me as a teacher and is willing to put up with me over the course of 16 weeks.”

My favorite excuse from a student for not turning in their work came early in the class, when I asked why the work had not been turned in: “Well, I got scared to take my new camera out of the box!!!!” she replied.

I wanted to tell her, “Listen, this is not third grade and it’s a camera not a Cabbage Patch Kid you need to get it dirty!” Needless to say, she did not return for the next class.

The rest however, from what I gathered, stayed and got more comfortable with my approach to photojournalism. It helps when you can teach from your own experiences and not just from other people’s work.  One assignment I included close to the end of the semester was street photography. I feel street photography is the building block for photojournalism and becoming comfortable with your surroundings and observing everything around you. After showing some personal work we spoke about other photographers who based their photography in the street photography mode.

This lecture was a great hit but no photographer served more inspiration than the work of the late photographer Vivian Maeir whose work became a must study in the street photography genre.  Overall, teaching  was a great experience and I would love to do it again.
