Each student will be responsible for having at least 4 projects per grading period, and some pictures enlarged through an outside lab. The student will learn and explore observational skills, photographic techniques, and “photography as art” concepts relating to art history and art philosophy. While learning how to use the camera, and how cameras work, the student will explore photography within different genres (portraits, landscape, interior and exterior space, sport, etc.). In addition, students will be learning computer programs that will further their understanding of the photographic process. They will explore simple techniques in Adobe Photoshop and photo editing processes.
