LEARNER SUPPLY LIST: Anaglyph 3D glasses (red & blue) on Amazon found here for $10. (Affiliate disclosure: As an Amazon Associate, I may earn commissions from qualifying purchases from Access to a camera. Any digital camera will do and would be preffered. However a cell phone camera will be okay as well, just not ideal for more advanced work. Students will be asked to take some pictures using some of the techniques discussed in class. Students can then upload one or two of their favorites for me to review.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

Learners will be able to follow along and edit their own photos using a program like Photoshop.
The program called Photopea is an online version of Photoshop.  If your learner can access the Photopea website online, they can follow my instructions in class to manipulate and enhance their own pictures.
