RCC Biocommunications Photography Students Publish “Lumen III: Impressions of Light”

The book was a collaborative project created by the students enrolled in the Creative Problem Solving class taught by Kevin Eames and is part of the Biocommunications concentration of the Photographic Technology curriculum. This is the smallest class to attempt to make a book, which is the class’s third book. Normally the Biocommunications Photography class averages between ten or twelve students. This year the class totaled four.
            
This project is designed to help develop problem solving, team building and communication skills. Students were responsible for the creation of the images, cover design, layout, marketing, publishing and copyright issues.  “A compilation of images might seem to be an easy project, but in reality the work consists of layer upon layer of troubleshooting, problem solving, compromise and extra work…on top of an already-busy academic schedule.” says Eames.
The book is available for purchase through Blurb, the publication company; at http://blur.by/1exDuoP
