Welcome to Group f/22 this site has been made as a free resource site, for anyone that has an interest in the art of photography. The information found on this web site is meant to be used for students, teachers, or self-taught photographers, to expand their knowledge in all aspects of photography. This site is a collaboration of three professional educators, which fields of studies combine twenty-one years in the arts with a Masters of Fine Arts, twenty-eight years in education with a Masters of Education, as well as sixteen years teaching as an Educational Specialist.
This site was created by these three educators to develop and inspire photography education for those that have a deep desire to learn these skills. All the information on this site has been researched and vetted by the three educators and the work has all been clarified or paraphrased by them with the hopes for the reader to have a clearer understanding of the information. This site was constructed and supervised during their time in the doctoral program at Lynn University in the completion of a Doctoral Degree in Education and Leadership.
It is hoped that this site and the community it creates can strengthen the art of photography. Isidro is an Art Instructor that specializes in film and digital photography. His work has been shown at many local and out of state galleries. Mr. Pentzke has also given numerous artists talks on his work. His most recent work covers augmented reality and the effect it has on today's society (2018).
It is hoped that this site and the community it creates can strengthen the art of photography. The three educators realized that when they combined their devotion to education and the arts, they could assist others in reaching their full potential while developing communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity throughout their instruction.
