Class Description
Monday, 2:15 PM to 3:15 PM
Teacher:  Mindy Heald
Age:  14 & up
Cost:  $280 tuition per year, paid in four $70 payments;
$35 copy/supply fee per year, paid in one $35 payment
Cost Details:  Includes private student website where all photos will be uploaded and a portfolio book for displaying their printed work.  Students are responsible for printing their work.
Description: This class will cover the basic functions of making photographs with your DSLR camera.  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.  Requirements: a basic DSLR camera, 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 good photo editing program on their laptop.  I highly recommend Adobe Lightroom as it is what I will be using in class, although there are other good editing programs as well.  Please feel free to contact me for help on choosing the right tools for your student.  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, and producing actual prints.  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.  If you have any questions about this class, please ask!
