Do you “take” pictures or “make” pictures. Photography can be fun but it takes skill to “make” pictures.
We will learn several proven rules of composition and when it’s ok to break the rules. (Admit it… it’s sometimes fun to break the rules!) We will look at different types of lighting and how it affects the mood and emotion of the picture. If we have time we will talk about the technical aspects of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.
Each class will consist of learning new composition and/or lighting techniques as well as constructive criticism of assignments by your peers. Don’t be afraid! Photography is subjective and a method by which you can express your creativity. There is no right or wrong photo. There is only room to improve!
Requirements: digital camera. This can be an actual camera or a cellular phone. You will be “making” lots of photos so be sure that your device has sufficient memory available. Each assignment will require you to email several of your best photos to me prior to class.
Students will choose and print their favorite/best photo and frame it. It will go on display at the end-of-the-year celebration.
