Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the basics of photography from history, composition, levels of exposure, white balance, shooting mods, editing, black and white photography and photography careers.
Homework can take anywhere from 30 minutes - 2 hours each week depending on how much time the student wants to invest in his or her practicing taking photos. These should be uploaded each week to the classroom. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
CAMERA: A digital DSLR camera is highly recommended, however, a camera from a smart phone will also work. Our classes will have photo taking assignments. LIGHTROOM MOBILE APP: (only for phone cameras) This app is highly recommended as we will be learning settings in our Digital DSLR and they also have most of those settings in this app that your student can use so he or she will still be learning along with us. It is $4.99 monthly after a 7 day free trial. See the link under materials. BINDER OR FOLDER: Also there will be notes with fill-in-the-blank areas that your student may find really helpful for class. I recommend printing them and putting them in a folder or binder to support learning.
I am happy to do assess your student's work for you! Letter grades along with the class description can be given for the class. Request from teacher within the first 2 weeks of class. Students who request a grade will be assessed according to participation in class and uploading photos to the classroom. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 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. I be sure to keep them all kid friendly. 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.
