A Photographic Study of MVC's Academic Services Building

by TDakin

A unique showpiece, the Student Academic Services building located on the Moreno Valley College campus draws the photographic eye to it's many textures and finishes. Completed in 2013 at a cost of nearly $20 million, the structure encases three stories of classrooms, offices, a cafe, and performance space. A 35-foot tall radius glass wall and unique MVC emblazoned metal panels enclose over 37,000 square feet. I hope you find it as visually interesting as I have.

Mirror is one of my many favorite ones. i like the reflection you were able to capture and the color scale you choose to edit it with. The frame is filled nicely and you were able to capture a lot of texture and detail within one image.

You captured some really good images but my most favorite was "Escort." I think it stood out more than any of the other ones. The colors were really different and the lines of the steps also make it interesting combined with the lines of the window tiles.

Amazing photos Tim.My favorite is the "Void." I like how you photographed the circular hole in the foyer ceiling. Very artistic and abstract. Great job Tim.

I love the formality of your exhibit. My Favorite is "The Void". I appreciate the composition and the contrast between the light and the dark side. :-} Eunice

I liked "void" the best. The composition and angle is great. I like the point of view you captured the picture in. It is different and unique from what is usually seen.

Hard to choose one image all a super cool to look at. The one i choose is the Barrier. I liked the description it has, but what i liked the most is that it's in black and white.

"Foyer" is definitely my favorite image. It's dark, framed off-tilt, and very focused on line and contrast.

Best of the series for me is "Escort". This picture looks as if the stairs are a reflection. Great tonality and hues.
