Class Experience

Students will learn the basics of photography whether their format be one-touch, iphone or DSLR. We will work with lighting and backlighting, composition, watching our backgrounds for distractions, and playing with the light for fun and different effects in the final image. Students will learn through both field work (in the home or in the backyard is A-ok!) and assignments, as well as looking at each others work and offering friendly critique based on that week's lesson. We will also look at professional work (including the teacher's own work) to help emphasize and highlight the lessons we're learning. 
As a trained photojournalist, landscape/nature photographer and a portrait photographer, I have tackled the camera and any subject in front of it. In my 20+ years of experience behind the camera, I have learned that practice is what brings every lesson to life. Together, the students and I will tackle a new lesson and then put those new ideas into practice in the field, whether that be in their home, their backyard, or somewhere else they decide to go.
Homework will include heading outside (in the home or in the backyard, on the balcony, etc is A-ok!) with the camera to find an image that includes the learnings from that week's lesson. If today's lesson is backlighting, head out at sunset and play with the light! If the lesson is on composition, show me how the rule of third works in your own image. Students will bring their images to class and we'll all take a look together. There is no better way to learn the art of photography than by playing with the camera.
All lesson content will be provided by the teacher. Students must have access to a camera of some sort: phone camera, one-touch, or DSLR.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
