Cordova Studio Portait Challenge

On Monday October 9th, thirteen DATA digital imaging students visited Cordova Photography, a professional portrait studio in Palm Desert, Ca. specializing in "the art of photographing people".  Students met with owner/photographer Phil Cordova, learned about his college experience at Brooks Institute and the business of running a studio, toured the facility, and participated in professional portrait sessions.  At the end of the tour Phil provided a challenge to the students to shoot on their own.  The challenge, Portraits from Nothing, will be professionally critiqued by Phil himself.

  1. During this trip, I was able to see how Mr. Cordova's business is being run.
    His studio had a lot of tools for him to be successful.

  2. The Cordova Studio was a very fun trip, I learned how girls have to sit different from guys when taking a picture (position). I also learned the different kind of lighting we have in order to get shadows.
