Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn to understand their cameras, photography, and videography better.  I will discuss things such as the exposure triangle, shutter speed, aperture, lenses, other settings on cameras, and some photo and video editing software.
While I've only been teaching for the past three years, Audio and Film Production at the high school level, I've been involved in the industry, professionally, for thirty years.  I started in television, a local ABC affiliate, and then worked at a few other television stations across the country, all incorporating my skills as a videographer on the news, sports, and commercial production side of things.  I did all of that for about ten years before branching out on my own and starting a video production company.  After that I owned a couple of marketing slash advertising agencies where I did a majority of the video work and a good portion of the photography for our clients.  And then interspersed between those ventures I freelanced my photography and video skills to various organizations and events.  I say professionally cause that's when I actually started getting paid to do the things I love.  My passion for telling stories visually began much earlier, in the sixth grade, when I took my first, and not last, video production class, and then some photography classes several years in college.  
No homework but I do recommend that students just get out there and take photographs and videos as often as possible. 
 5 files available upon enrollment
A camera, preferably a DSLR or mirrorless camera, but any camera will work even it's a phone or a tablet. I'll also be providing a Handy Handout for the students.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I'll provide a Handy Handout that highlights some of the topics we'll be discussing.
