Intro to PJ class goes on field trip to news photo exhibit, news station

   The Intro to Photojournalism class at Owens Community College kicked off the month by going on a field trip Feb. 1.
   We first went to the Toledo School for the Arts Gallery to view the Blade Photos By... a month-long photo exhibit, which showcased 40 prints by eight photojournalists.
   Then we toured the newly renovated Channel 13abc news station. Our tour guide was Diane Larson, the evening WTVG news anchor, who is a former student of this class!
   There's nothing better than getting out of the classroom to view the work of employed photojournalists (in full disclosure, I'm one of them), and to get a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at a local television station.
