Krueger photographers document downtown

Equipped with lenses, lights, reflectors and creativity, Krueger Middle School photography students visited downtown San Antonio to shoot images for the upcoming Association of Texas Photography Instructors Fall Photo Contest. Capturing everything from architecture to advertising shots, students scoured the streets from the Alamo to Market Square; Hemisfair Park to La Villeta.

"Downtown was a fun experience seeing all the differences in texture, architecture, and lighting throughout the city," 8th grade student, Coral said.

After spending half the day downtown, the photographers boarded the bus to the Pearl complex to work with models on environmental and fashion portraiture. Local life-style and wedding photographer Brandi Sutherland served as both model (with her daughter Sloan) and photography coach. Costume designer Denee Hanna created a magical model scene for both herself and 'mini-model' and Northwood elementary student Rylie.

"I loved being able to direct the models, choose my own angles, and create a portrait like the professionals do," 8th grade photographer, Sarah said.

Photos from the trip will used for contest as well as exhibits throughout the city. Krueger photographers have a long-standing record of success against their national competition in the ATPI contests.
