In this 6 week course, students will learn the basics of photo composition and how to set up an interesting photo. Students will need access to a digital camera for this course. Students will be required to take pictures and upload them to the course page for feedback from the teacher and possibly from their classmates. Some experience is required. This course is geared toward students that are between the ages of 8-12 years old. Each week, we will start with a class meeting via Zoom,...
Students will improve their skills in photo composition by learning various components of the subject.
I've been a teacher in a traditional classroom since 2002. During that time, I have experience with pre-K through 8th grade. To further my interest in photography, I completed the New York Institute of Photography courses and received my certificate of completion in 2006. I've also completed several online training to strengthen my skills. I have photographed weddings, real estate, and portraits professionally but I absolutely love photographing nature and macro shots!
Each week, students will be assigned a photo taking project and asked to share one or two of their favorite photos of the week to discuss in class. Public discussion is optional.
Students will need a digital camera to complete this course. It does not have to be anything fancy or high-tech. As long as it takes pictures, it's fine! If students are unable to upload photos to the classroom, they will need to have access to printing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be informally assessed through weekly sharing and critique discussions. A structured rubric and letter grade is available upon request.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
