Level 1: Learn how to see the world in a whole new way – through the eye of the photographer! In this class you will learn how to operate a 35mm SLR camera, how to develop and print your own film in the darkroom, and how to compose photographs like a pro! You will also learn basic tools for producing digital photographs in Adobe Photoshop. We will consider what makes a photographic image great, and what tools and techniques photographers use to capture the compelling images that are used in successful advertisements, magazines, or hung in art galleries.
Upper Level: Take your skills learned in Photo 1 to explore exciting new dimensions of photography! In this course, you will refine your camera, composition, and printing skills and take your creative use of photography to a deeper level. We will work with a number of different genres of photography, including portraiture, documentary, narrative photography, and mixed-media work.
