With finally getting into the swing of things this semester, there are definitely certain classes and professors that I have been enjoying and learning a lot thus far. While all of my classes have been great, there have definitely been standouts among my 2 semesters. I figured that I would share with all the readers and prospective students, photography majors and other majors alike, so that when it comes down to registration, you get the awesome profs!
- Photoshop 1 for Photographers – Professor Allison Wermager
I am only a few weeks in on this class but I have definitely enjoyed it. Professor Wermager is incredibly helpful and supportive of your work and progress in the class. She is always willing to help which is really a beautiful thing.
- The Art & Practice of Self Defense – Officer Daniel Modell
I’ve already learned so much in this class. It is incredibly fascinating to learn about how we can protect ourselves with our own strength. It is comforting to know that if I am ever in any dangerous situations (hopefully never) that I can protect myself.
- Advertising Photography Medium Format – Professor Didier Dorot
While this class is a dreadful 6 hours long, I have learned SO much! Professor Dorot has a lot of incredible insight and advice on the industry and what it is like to be on a professional set and how to deal with clients.
- English Composition – Professor Jeff Brewer
I have never learned so much in a single class. Professor Brewer has many life experiences and incorporates them into the curriculum and has us channel our own experiences into our writing. Professor Brewer is hands down the funniest professor at FIT.
- Introductory Sociology – Professor Victor Corona
What an incredible class. Not only is Professor Corona writing a book on Warhol, Club Kids, and Lady Gaga (SO COOL) the curriculum is interesting to all FIT students.
