Comm 316 Students – Fine Art Photography

Meet my Professional Imaging students – Win 2017

I am so proud of my students this semester in my Comm 316 Professional Imaging course. Each one of them has an awesome website of beautiful, creative, versatile imagery and design. You could hire any of them and be very happy about it. Check out their website, by clicking the link under their fine art image below.

These large fine art prints are framed and on display in the Spori foyer this week Thursday, March 2 – Thursday March 9, so come by to see the full size display if you are in the area. Here is our group in February while on our three-day photo excursion to Victor – Jackson and the Tetons! We had hands-on workshops with so many different genres of photography: food and product, macro, light painting, long exposure, portraiture, posing lighting, wildlife, landscape. Since then we have been doing creative photoart, and next we have a fashion shoot and do architectural photography. Each student practices SEO to get their work at the top of search topics with 10 million of more web results.

We also practice web design skills and set up a marketing plan with pricing and contracts for their own businesses. Students created movie posters to introduce themselves at the start and  they will design a Creative Resume Handout for their final project.  I am so pleased to introduce my students and their incredible work here. Enjoy!

Student Highlights: W17 Comm 316 – Movie Poster

The Movie Poster project is a favorite in Comm 316 at BYU-Idaho

I always look forward to see how my students will portray themselves through a movie poster in my Comm 316 Professional Imaging course. Each student selects a real or fictitious movie to showcase their life and style. The following students are being featured for their creative and well executed designs. I was impressed with the quality lighting and image editing techniques of all my students’ work. Who wouldn’t want to hire any one of them?  Be sure to click on the link below each project to visit the student’s blog post on their website.

Congratulations to Sarah Rodebush, Emily Froelich, Ben Fagersten, Emma Simkins, Emily Birkmeyer

Welcome to my Photo Blog



Caryn Esplin Photodesign
Photography and graphic design are some of my favorite distractions in life, so teaching something I love, couldn't be any better. I enjoy curriculum design on the college level, and I love the amazing students I work with. When I don't have a camera or computer mouse in my hands, I am cooking up a new recipe or traveling with my family, who are the coolest people on the planet. After all is said and done, I really love my life, and it is my peeps that make it so great.
