📸 In this weekly club learners will improve their photography skills through weekly challenges, peer discussion, and teacher feedback. This club is geared toward middle and high school learners who are enthusiastic about photography, whether they are experienced shutterbugs or newly exploring photography. 📸 No specialized equipment is required! While we will discuss how to use advanced camera features such as aperture, manual focus, and shutter speed, learners are welcome to take photos on...
Participants will learn: - How light, exposure, depth of field, composition, angle of view, timing, and motion combine to create a fantastic photograph. - How to better use the features of a digital or phone camera. - How to use elements of composition such as angles, lighting, depth of field, leading lines, and the rule of thirds to capture compelling photographs. - How to take photos of people, animals, nature, still scenes, and action.
I have been a professional teacher for over a dozen years and an amateur photographer for more than twenty years.
📸 Learners are expected to bring five recent photographs to class each week. 📸 I prefer that learners stick with the assigned topic each week, but understand if resources or circumstances prevent them from completing a specific challenge.
Learners will need to have: - A digital camera. They may use a phone camera or a standalone digital camera. - A basic understanding of how to take a photograph using their camera. - Ability to download photos from the camera and upload them to the Outschool classroom. I can give reminders and some guidance, but this class is focused on the technique of photography rather than how to manage files on devices.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will receive verbal feedback from their peers and teacher, as well as visual feedback from their teacher through on-screen annotations.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please check student photos to ensure they are appropriate for sharing in the classroom and do not contain anything which the family considers private (addresses, faces of people who's jobs restrict online presence, etc.)
