Class Description
Monday, 11:20 AM to 12:20 PM
Teacher:  Mindy Heald
Age:  14 & up
Cost:  $70 tuition, 1 of 4 payments;
$35 copy/supply fee per year
Description: This class will cover the basic functions of making photographs with your DSLR.  Students will gain confidence in their ability to handle their cameras, moving from auto mode into understanding how to manually change the different settings to achieve the desired outcome. The emphasis of this class will be to use a creative approach to capturing images, allowing the students to find their own "voice" while understanding the basic elements of photography:  aperture, shutter, and ISO. Students will need a basic DSLR, a laptop with wireless internet capability, a working knowledge of their computer, and the necessary accessories to bring it all together (memory cards, card reader or cable to connect the camera to the computer, batteries, power cables, etc.).  The student will also need a photo editing program on their laptop and options will be discussed during the first class.  As a class, we will focus on encouraging the development of a personal style and standards, working individually and as a team, giving and receiving constructive criticism, learning to catalog and organize photos, and producing an actual print.  Students will build their own portfolios and display their work at least once during the school year.  They will be expected to use their cameras, edit, upload, and print their photos in class as well as at home.
