Artful eyes

Jackson Koorenhof wants to be a photographer.

“I’m from the Eastside,” the Kauai Community College digital photography student said. “I like working with waves, mostly on the North Shore.”

Koorenhof’s work will be part of the exhibit at the historic Waimea Theater featuring the introductory and intermediate levels of digital photography taught by instructor Serge Marcil.

“I think Serge likes the sunset photo, so I’ve got a lot of work to do to get this ready,” said David Victorino, a Waialeale Project student. “This is just outside my porch in Kapahi — nothing fancy.”

Cami Matsumoto, KCC spokeswoman, said the exhibit features a collection ranging from landscape photography to portraits and still life. It is being brought to the community to enable more people to enjoy the work and accomplishments of its students.

The exhibit opens from 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday. Other exhibit dates include Dec. 17 from 6 to 9 p.m., Dec. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m., Dec. 19 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. It will open from 1 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Dec. 20. The final week will be 5 to 8 p.m. Dec. 21 and from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Dec. 26 and Dec. 27.

The Kauai Community College Digital Photography courses taught by Marcil cover the basics of camera handling to light for portraits and the aesthetics of taking good photographs.

Students learn on state-of-the-art digital single lens reflex cameras. Photo equipment, including camera, lenses, and lighting are available for student use, free of charge.
