Using digital cameras, students learn the art and science of photography!
The history of photography is filled with photographers using what they have to find creative solutions to challenging situations. Join us for Young Photographers virtually this summer!
Photography is a wonderful creative way to work digitally and independently. We will use the camera to find new ways of seeing and reflecting personal experience.
The focus of Young Photographers is on camera techniques, the use of computer software for enhancing images and refining editing techniques to share your personal vision.
Both experienced and inexperienced photographers are welcome.
The program instructor will help students build a digital portfolio and provide supportive feedback. Students will present a virtual exhibition of their work at the end of the course.
Requirements for Students at Home
- DSLR camera, Adobe Photoshop & Bridge*
*Note: Other cameras and editing software alternatives may be used. Please confirm suitability with the instructor before class starts.
- Computer, Internet connection
- Optional: External hard drive (recommended to store image work files)
Students will receive live instruction which will include group discussions and activities that can be completed at home.
This program will allow students to meet other creative youth and share their work, all while improving their photography and digital communication skills.
