Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the basics of photography from where photography came from, where it is now, and where its going, as far as we can tell. This is a first level course designed to just introduce the student to photography.
I have been teaching for over 13 years and I have taught photography on Outschool since 2019. I am also a family photographer which qualifies me for teaching this class as well. 
Homework will take 1-2 hours each week and will include taking photos from the class discussion each week.
CAMERAS: A digital DSLR is highly recommended, which can be bought, borrowed, or rented from various photography equipment sites, friends or family, however a basic point & shoot or phone camera works well too. APP: For phone cameras only, there is an app called Lightroom Mobile app (link above in materials) that has some of the same settings as a digital DSLR and is also highly recommended if a phone camera is being used, but is not required. Also the Lightroom Mobile App is a phone camera app that is a camera as well as an editing tool. I recommend the camera app because it offers shutter speed, exposure, white balance, and ISO options. The app currently has a 7 day free trial, then it's $4.99 a month. If you do not want to use this app, feel free to find another one with the options listed is possible. It is highly recommended but not required. BINDER or FOLDER: There will be notes attached in the classroom before class each week, and I recommend printing them and using them in class to follow along and refer back to later. You may want to hole punch them and place them in a binder or put them in a folder.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
If a letter grade is needed, ***let the teacher within the first three classes.***The grade will include a class description, your student's name and the dates when the class was taken. This will be on a letterhead with an Outschool logo, also on the paper will be the teacher's name and the name of the class. Thanks. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I am utilizing Spark, an Adobe product, through screen share only, to create my presentations for class. I am also using YouTube videos that either I created or that already exist on the platform. They are kid friendly and appropriate for middle schoolers. I also don't show the whole video and just pick out sections that support my teaching. 

Also the Lightroom Mobile App is a phone camera app that is a camera as well as an editing tool. I recommend the camera app because it offers shutter speed, exposure, white balance, and ISO options. The app currently has a 7 day free trial, then it's $4.99 a month. If you do not want to use this app, feel free to find another one with the options listed is possible. It is highly recommended but not required.
