Communities In Schools of Juneau / Juneau-Douglas High School / CHOICE
Beyond School Photography 




Each year the Communities In Schools of Juneau, site coordinator at Juneau-Douglas High School teaches digital photography classes in cooperation with the school's CHOICE program. Students learn the basics of photo composition and use of digital darkroom software. Classes take several field trips each semester to Juneau's down town area, local boat harbors and parks. Student photographers from the program have been featured in the New York Times and Juneau Empire. Most recently one of our students placed in the Alaska statewide ASTE photo competition.




Juneau History Project
Last spring our photography students had the chance to step into history, with help from the staff at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum we were able to access historic photos of some of Juneau's most famous landmarks. Students took copies of these photographs on location and re-created the "shot" using their modern cameras. Back in the digital darkroom we took the new photos and layered them under the old. The result was a merged photo blending today and yesterday. Our photographers then  provided the photos to the Juneau-Douglas City Museum for an exhibition entitled "Picture Stitching". The exhibition ran from May 1, 2015 to September 30, 2015 and hosted hundreds of visitors. Good Job CHOICE photographers!
