Photography is such a great way to express yourself while also being a life documentarian, you just need the right tools!
Examples of past students work from Photo 101 below:
Thoughts from Alaina on the benefits of learning the art of photography.
“Photography is a great art medium. It can be moody and dark or bright and airy. I love giving my students the tools (knowledge) they need to express themselves in a way that won’t only lift their spirits (empower them) but can impact others’ lives in the process as well.”
Students will learn how to properly adjust their camera’s manual settings. They will also learn about, the exposure triangle, depth of field, white balance, numerous lighting techniques and scenarios, composition, storytelling and much more.
Focus will be on numerous genres of photography and learn about past and present photographers while discussing their style and techniques.
The students will also learn editing techniques to really make their images stand out.
We start with the very basics but progress quickly so by the end of the class the students’ are proficient at using their camera and producing a quality and well thought out set of images for their portfolio.
