Class Description:

My 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, history of great photographers, composition, storytelling and much more.

We start with the very basics but progress quickly so by the end of the class the students’ creativity blossoms as they have learned how to use their cameras to create the art and images that they want. They will have also learned to capture the world how they see it, which is just as unique as the person.

There is plenty of time to practice the new skill taught during the class time so the students can go home knowing how to work on the assignment for the week.

The students learn how to capture light and shadows. This is the photograph I created during the silhouette lesson.

Benefits:

We start with the very basics but progress quickly so by the end of the class the students’ creativity blossoms as they have learned how to use their cameras to create the art and images that they want. They will have also learned to capture the world how they see it, which is just as unique as the person.

There is plenty of time to practice the new skill taught during the class time so the students can go home knowing how to working on the assignment for the week.

I’m a visual learner so I really need to see what I’m suppose to learn. I also am one, like most, who will remember after I have done it myself and that is how I’ve chosen to teach my photography class.

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.
