SAN BENITO — Paul Hernandez, San Benito CISD’s animation and commercial photography instructor, began to pull a wide roll of photographic paper out at an angle.
With each tug and pull, Hernandez began to carefully load the paper into the printer while making adjustments to ensure it was inserted straight.
With the printer materials in place, Hernandez pulled up a class photo of medical students from the district’s Career and Technical Education program and clicked through an array of steps on the computer.
Within seconds, the large-scale printer in his classroom registered the command and began to steadily swipe back and forth as each stroke of ink continued to set rich pigmented color onto the paper.
After reaching the end of the paper, the printer slowly pushed it down toward the printer’s tray.
