A club for those who look through the lense

Students who have caught the photography bug now have a club to express their creative outlet. A photography club has recently started at Wayne State. They had their first meeting on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 4 p.m. in the Meadowlark room of the Student Center.

The photography club was created by freshman Brianna Parsons and sophomore Kori Siebert. They started this for students who want to expand and share their photography skills while having fun.

“I envision students just getting together to collab and create art together,” Siebert said. “We want them to inspire each other, to build each other up, and to create awesome art.”

Parsons and Siebert are both very passionate about photography and wanted a club for other students interested in photography to have a community and learn from one another. Parsons explained how they plan to have different activities for the members to participate in.

“We’re going to have a weekly challenge type of thing for a certain theme that week,” Parsons said. “Isaac Baker also has an idea for photoshoot themes that we will do.”

Siebert talked about how she hopes the members can gain more photography skills from the club and learn new ideas. She believes in “Community over Competition” meaning that instead of everyone against one another, they can all work together and grow as photographers.

“It’s basically to see other people’s photos and build off of it,” Parsons said. “We can critique them and do it all in a positive way to help other people learn and do it their own way.”

The photography club will have their next meeting on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 4 p.m. in the Meadowlark room in the Student Center.
