Name removal | Soquel students visit the photography department of Cabrillo – Santa Cruz Sentinel


Recently, students from the Advanced Digital Media Arts class at Soquel High School visited the photography department at Cabrillo College. The purpose of the visit was to give students an overview of some of the course offerings offered by the department and an overview of some of the other visual and performing arts courses offered at Cabrillo.

The visit included a guided tour of the classes, which was an effective way to show students first-hand what a real-life class session would be like. To enhance the tour into a more immersive and realistic experience, the tour guides – photography department teachers Lesley Louden and Janet Fine – held a hands-on demonstration for the students, which turned out to be the highlight of the trip, according to the school digital media arts teacher Marco Lucadano.

Despite Cabrillo College’s proximity to Soquel High, for many Soquel students it was their first time on the Aptos campus, Lucadano said. Some impressions included enjoying the fresh look of the facilities. Compared to Soquel High, which dates back to the 1960s with only partial updates to the facilities taking place recently, it’s no surprise that students were impressed with the well-maintained grounds and classrooms.

After the guided tour, the students were gathered in the photo studio where Fine and Louden held a digital photo transfer demonstration. Earlier in the week, the students had to submit some of their digital photos they had taken for the demonstration, and then Fine printed the photos onto transparent film. The transfer process also included a sheet of watercolor paper, hand sanitizer, a roller and a spoon.

When complete, the digital image was transferred to the paper with stunning color saturation and subtle texture that enhanced the look of the photo. The students were captivated by the process and expressed their joy at the result and the difference between their images in an alternative printing process compared to the screen, Lucadano said.

The visit left a lasting impression on the digital media arts teacher at Soquel High School. “I have over 25 years of teaching high school and this was one of the most engaging trips I’ve taken with students,” Lucadano said. “When they applied this extension of their digital knowledge to the digital transfer process, it became a truly inspiring moment for them (the Soquel students).”
