The Equipment checkout place is in Building 18 where students usually rent camera gear.
The Blue Cyc Wall is also in Building 18 and is in lab room A.
The Student Engagement Center is in the center building and located on the second floor.
Building 11 is the main Art Gallery.
The Art-O-Mat is found inside the Art Gallery is is to the right of Mr. Ingram’s office.
The Library is on the second floor of the Center Building and is on the left if you take the elevator.
The big silver sculpture is right outside of Building 31. The silver sculpture is neat to look at up close because there are little engravings on it that almost look like the Japanese alphabet.
Ingram’s office is located in Building 11 and he was just leaving his office so I didn’t get a picture of him in his office.
The Media Creation Lab is on the second floor in the Center building in the library.
Judy Gate’s office is found in Building 11.
Ms. Teresa’s office is in Building 2 and is decorated with little trinkets on the outside.
I took a picture of the flags in Building 1.
I was fortunate to find a baby turkey along with an adult one up close!
My first stop was at the Equipment Checkout Counter in Building 18. I had to wait quite a while for the perfect shot, because it was closed most of the time. This is the only one photo I have with the window open!
Across the counter was Studio A with the “Blue Cyc Wall”.
My next stop was the Student Engagement Center. I like how everything is tidy and organized. My kind of place. I was quite intrigued by the popcorn machine and it’s intricate gears!
My next destination was in Building 11 with the beautiful Art Gallery. The soft faded lights made this place feel somewhat nostalgic.
Right around the corner was this cool machine. I didn’t even know a machine like this existed. Drop in five dollars and it can give you pocket-sized artworks from paintings to sculptures to poems, or any other art related pictures.
The library is one of my favorite places to relax and study at the same time, so this place was easy to find. What wasn’t easy was trying to get a photo without students being uncomfortable with their picture being taken, so I decided on this shot. It was the only way I could take a picture of the library without interfering with anyone.
This was my favorite photo to take. I had my camera tilted upward with myself leaning against the sculpture. I love how the blue-grey clouds and trees are reflected in the sculpture like a mirror.
I had an interesting encounter before I took this photo. I knew this was the room I needed to photograph, but I didn’t know would Mr. Ingram be comfortable with me taking a picture of his office without his permission. I had this whole conversation with one of my classmates and didn’t know that the man standing across from me was Mr. Ingram himself! He was standing there listening to every single word. That was the worst mistake I made that day! He walked over to me and casually introduced himself to me. I laughed nervously as I explained what I had to do for the assignment and he was just fine. I took one shot, thanked Mr. Ingram, and left before any more awkward situations could happen.
I liked taking this photo of the Media Creation Lab, because it was totally empty. I could play around with the lights and shadows. In fact, I was the one who arranged the chairs to look this certain way. The black squares against the simple background, plus the added angle makes for a good abstract look.
Judy Gates’s office is one I’ve trip I’ve made several times. Here she is busily working on her computer.
On the way to photography class, I snapped this photo of Teresa’s office. How I wish my office looked this tidy!
This shot was random. I was busy arranging myself to take this photo, so I put my camera down and it clicked. I happen to love this shot. It is the perfect angle and view!
I had to chase the silly turkeys around campus before I got this shot. It seems like this turkey knew I had to take a photo of him, so instead of behaving nice, he turned his back on me. Well, at least the pattern on his tail is highlighted against the nice black pavement.
As this is my first year technically in the Media Arts program (I have previously taken some Media Arts classes, but was a Journalism major) I have not had the opportunity to utilize this resource yet. I am looking forward to it.
I had several opportunities to use this wall in the Lighting for Photography class that I took last winter, but I did not end up needing to use it for any of my projects. I will be shooting self-portraits in front of it this week though, for my Digital Imaging class. The blue should make it a lot easier to cut myself out for a composite image. The lighting in there is pretty fantastic too.
I had actually never heard of this place, but it came at the perfect time of my journey, I was starving but trying to hurry and catch the next bus. The woman in there was very nice and pointed me toward a beautiful vase. I feel like I was not the only one who she pointed toward that vase and I think it was in an effort to avoid photographs taken of her. I respect that.
I was in this building for both Newswriting and Photography class during my first term at Lane. I always liked checking out the new exhibits, and still do when I’m in the area.
This thing is very cool, I cannot personally afford $5 for a small piece of art, but I really like the concept. I think these things should be in malls instead of (or at least along with) food/drink vending machines.
One of the most important and useful resources at on any college campus, I have probably under-utilized this library since I started at Lane. I don’t read many paper-books anymore; Most of my life has become digitized like so many other peoples. I do appreciate that this library that has Mac’s that dual-boot Windows for PC users. When I first started at Lane I was pretty new to Macintosh, it took some getting used to and I still prefer my PC for most things.
I tried this sculpture from many different angles. When I first tried to shoot it, there was a guy raking leaves right in my desired shot. I ended up leaving and coming back, taking many shots from above and below, but this ended up being my favorite shot from inside.
Ingram seems like a very nice and easy-going guy. This clearly was not his first visit from an Intro to Media Arts student. The girl in front of him ended up way out of focus, but I didn’t want to bug him any more by trying to get a better shot.
This is another place on this scavenger hunt that I did not know existed! Seems like a nice, quiet space to work on projects if needed, at least maybe a little quieter than out in the library. The outside of this room does not have the best lighting for taking photographs, and there were people working inside that I didn’t want to disturb. I did my best with what I had.
I don’t know Ms. Gates but it looks like she is super helpful. This photo is not posed at all. I think it turned out really good and showed her helping a student navigate Moodle.
Hands down, the worst lighting of any location on the scavenger hunt. The natural light coming in from the window in back is much brighter than the fluorescent lighting in the hallway. This was the only angle I could even pull a shot off from without the sunlight destroying it. In retrospect, I wish I would have gone back on a cloudier day.
I have to say, if the ‘flags’ part weren’t in the instructions. I would have had no idea where this was, I have never heard of it referred to as the ‘Students First Building’. I guess now I know. The sheer amount of flags in here is pretty amazing.
This is a quick shot of the sculpture in front of the school. This was taken with my phone, because I forgot my camera this day. I may try to get another one with my Nikon in the morning on the way to class and update it. I really like this sculpture, because supposedly there is no concrete or glue or anything holding those stones together (according to my Photo 1 teacher), they just used a crane and wedged all the pieces together. That had to be very cool to watch.
The equipment checkout was all locked up when I got there.
I was originally locked out of this room, so I had to come back in about an hour or so to take this picture.
I’ve never actually been in this place, but I am always smelling the popcorn when I go by!
Every time I am waiting to meet with an academic advisor (Judy Gates), I am checking out all this beautiful art. Come check it out. It’s free!
I know I am not the only one who doesn’t really know what this is. Maybe I’ll learn in this class?
The guy working at the Reference counter in the library was trying to charge me five dollars to take a picture of the counter.
This is a very interesting piece of art, and I know very little about it. I know that it is covered with engravings, but I didn’t stay long enough to see what the engravings were about.
Ingram was very busy at the time (doing his job, of course), so here’s a picture of his door!
I had trouble finding this place on campus, but someone in the library was willing to show me where it was. He also informed me that this room will be changing to something else, but I can’t remember what it was changing to, unfortunately.
Once again, Judy was very busy at that time, so here’s another fascinating picture of a door! I guess I didn’t time my scavenger hunt very well.
I had to take a number of different pictures of Teresa’s office because I would always look back at the pictures and a reflection of myself in the window taking the picture. This angle seemed to be the most useful considering the situation.
I really need to pay more attention, because I just found out that Lane had so many flags of different countries!
This turkey is the coolest turkey on campus! She stood there for about 30 seconds, standing still, just for me to take her picture (or because she thought that if she stood very still, I would eventually leave).
I also decided to take this shot as well because I didn’t want to just take a picture of a turkey; I wanted something a little different and more original.
There I was, looking like a fool snapping a close-up picture of the Equipment Checkout sign…
It’s kind of hard to take pictures of the Studios when they locked! I had to ask someone to let me in…
Man, that’s a lot of resources! Thank you Student Engagement Center!!
I am always amazed by the art in the campus’s own Art Gallery!
Can’t get enough art by just visiting the Art Gallery? Thankfully, the nearby Art-o-Mat can get you some art for five bucks apiece!
Hush!!! It’s the Library!
It may not look silver, but this in fact is the Silver Sculpture by the Health and Wellness Building!
There I was awkwardly taking pictures of someone’s door. In this case my victim is Ingram!!
If the media creation resources of Building 18 just aren’t enough, I’m pleased to announce that there are even more resources located in the library!!
Yet again, I was making myself look like a fool by taking pictures of Judy Gates’s meeting sign-up sheet next to her office!
Next victim: Teresa Hughes’s office!
Need help with figuring out where to start? Come to the Students First Building!
I wanted to have find a turkey to victimize with my camera, but I decided to victimize half of the campus instead!

First up is the Equipment checkout counter in building 18, the students working here are very friendly and helped me out with some camera tips. Be sure to learn their schedule if you ever need to check out equipment!
This is the Studio room with the “Blue Cyc Wall” in building 18, it’s used as a back drop for photo shoots and video recording. This place opened up in the Winter term so it’s still pretty new!
The Center for Student Engagement is where you can find information about school clubs, fun activities like board games, and popcorn!
The main Art Gallery on campus has different exhibitions all the time, one of my favorite recurring exhibitions is the “Annual Faculty Exhibition.”
The “Art-O-Mat” machine is a very interesting little machine, you insert a $5 and you can get a surprise piece of art varying from tiny sculptures to beautiful earrings and necklaces.
The library is located in the Center building in the second floor, it contains a large computer lab and friendly staff to help you with technical problems and how to find resources or textbooks.
The “Health and Wellness center” can easily be found on campus because of the beautiful, silver structure sitting in front of it. You can capture a lot of beautiful photos, by shooting the structure from different angles.
Ingram is our Arts division Office Specialist, you can find his office in building 11. It was my first time meeting him, but he seems to be very kind and approachable.
The Media Creation Lab is located in the Center building, inside the library. There’s usually plenty of room here, quiet and all adobe creative cloud programs are installed in all the computers. If you have a big multimedia project come here, the ram and storage in the computers can make your projects go a lot faster.
Judy Gates is our Media Arts counselor, she’s very kind and helpful; I wish I had gotten to know her sooner, since she’s been a great source of support for myself and others I’m sure.
Teresa’s office is located in building 18, it’s pretty easy to recognize because of all the little clay figurines lined up on her windowsill.
In building 1 the “students first building,” you can find lots of places and resources such as the “Gender equity center,” and the multicultural center.
Welcome to Lane! Hope you enjoy your time here!
You can totally climb the latter in this room if you have a camera in your hands.
This popcorn is F R E E, and pretty dang good.
Wonderful works of art from students here at Lane.
I have no idea what this thing is or was used for.
where you can go to find help looking up or verifying a source.
this piece of art has some cool quotes engraved onto it.
This dude is really cool about getting his picture taken!
another room of computers in the library
awesome counselor! very helpful with any scheduling needs.
These ceramic sculptures are pretty cool! i love the cyborg frog!
a beautiful display of nations flags from around the world!
this turkey is not a happy camper as I chased it in and out of bushes…
I went on a journey this week in order to find the best places and people to know in order to get ahead here at Lane. My first mission was to locate the Equipment Checkout, a place to get whatever devices we are going to need throughout the next few years.
Found it! This is going to be a frequently visited spot I’m sure! Okay up next we have the studio with the “Big Cyc Wall” hmmm, there’s a door marked studio 1, wonder what’s in there…
There it is, wonderful. This is where we have photography class as well. Now it’s time for the Center for Student Engagement building. Well that must be in the Center.
Yup here we are, also there’s popcorn, and it’s free! Our journey should now lead us to the main art gallery, probably in the old media building I’m guessing.
Look at this cool bunny-cat-rooster, I like it! This also appears to be the gallery we were looking for…
Nice, we also found the Art-o-mat as well! Let’s check out the library now.
Rows and rows of books, it’s beautiful, a place of learning indeed. I hear there’s a media lab in here too, but first let’s go see the large sculpture outside.
Look at it shining in the sun, what a cool structure.
And look we have Ingram sitting in his office, look at that pose! Back to the library we have…
The media creation lab, there’s also one in building 18 and I’m sure there will be lots of hours typing away on these computers. Looking back towards the old Media Arts Building we have,
Judy Gates, our program advisor, working on some fun things I’m sure. Let’s find Teresa Hughs office now.
Look at these cool figures she has in her office! I love the On Air switch as well, it cycles through a ton of different colors. We are almost done with our adventure but a few more stops first.
We have these flags located in the Students First building, a great place to go for all kinds of information about the campus and classes. Finally we turn to, arguably, the most important staple of the Lane campus, the greatest part about the college, and what we’ll be seeing most while we’re here…
The beautiful and majestic turkeys we have running all over campus. I don’t know what they’re doing here, but I think they’re absolutely wonderful. This poor little guy was probably upset that I followed it to get a picture, but it was certainly worth it in the end. Thus our journey is now complete and we have a better understanding of the campus as a whole. Thank you for accompanying me on this wonderful quest, I’m sure there will be many more to come as we continue on!
