Speaker and Michael Maluchnik (1987-2016) had two great passions:  cars and photography.  His family endows a photography seminar each year where middle school students are taught Four Skills on Framing a Good Photo:

  1. Leading the Eye with Lines

  2. Rule of Thirds

  3. Balance

  4. Simplicity


Typically, the seminar starts at 900am on a Spring morning when students are paired with a professional photographer or college film major.  Car enthusiasts bring their classic automobiles and park them on the front lawn of the MPAC.  After a morning of composing shots, the students review their photos on laptop computers and select their top 8 photographers (2 per skill).  Selected photos are printed and displayed at the MPAC for an entire year.
