Course Description

Teens have a growing interest in digital photography. In this guided workshop, students learn the basic operation of digital cameras, composition, and how to use natural light to create a compelling photograph and how to critique and judge a photograph on its merits. Students will photograph each day and give their camera card to the instructor who will process and edit the work for each day’s critique session. Students leave the workshop with four 4”x6” prints of their best photographs. The workshop ends with a slideshow of student work, parents and siblings are encouraged to attend.
