Cape Town, July 15, 2016 – The work intensity increases as the students work with subjects to get their final images, and then meet with instructors – and, in at least one case, their subject as well – to get final critiques of their stories.
The day opened with heavy rain, which continued until the afternoon, when the famous Cape sunshine returned, showing a rainbow across Table Mountain National Park. Meanwhile students were huddling with their instructors in the staff hotel to get critiques and suggestions on their stories.
In one case, the subject also came to the editing session. Yamkela Nqweniso, 16, a star South African girls youth soccer player, whose story Foundry student Tracey Pennoyer has been photographing, asked to see the images and the editing process. Her interaction with Tracy and with instructors Peter DiCampo and Edward Echwalu showed humor and delight in the images she saw. Look at it below.
Other sessions, spread out in groupings with other instructors throughout the hotel lobby, continued throughout the day with equal intensity.
