Photography is a year long course. This course uses the digital camera to build basic skills in students who have an interest in photography, but no prior experience. Using the combination of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on experience, this course will explore the basic photographic techniques involved in making and taking high quality photographs. The first semester will focus on mastering camera handling, composition, file management, different photography styles and genres (portraits, landscape, interior, and exterior space, sport, etc.). In the second semester we will build upon these skills while exploring introductory photo editing techniques in Adobe photoshop and Adobe Lightroom. Photography students are responsible for providing their own digital camera that offers a full manual mode.

Open to Grades: 9,10,11,12
