Art Educator Workshop: Introduction to Digital Photography and Adobe Photoshop (Summer 2014)

Art Educator Programs

This class will focus on the mechanical operations of a Digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera, and with those skills, learn how to best formulate projects and assignments for high school students. 

The photographic medium is seemingly redefined every year. Digital photography has become an inescapable reality in terms of artistic practice and personal documentation. Though the endless streams of technical jargon can be intimidating, the medium remains, at its core, the manipulation of light. 

This class will provide an introduction in digital photography, spanning the range of techniques from exposure and composition to the features of a Digital SLR camera that make photography more exciting than ever before.

Digital Imaging programs like Adobe Photoshop will also be a component to the class, but students will focus more on how to make it right in the camera the first time. As this is a technical class, students will need a Digital SLR camera that accepts interchangeable lenses. Point-and-shoot cameras will not be adequate, and will not allow you to utilize the material successfully. / Facilities fee of $40 in addition to class tuition.

What to Bring: Digital SLR camera; notebook; pen/pencil.
