Intro to Photography


2019 Summer Program

We live in an age where everyone with a phone is a photographer too, and the selfie reigns supreme. But what actually makes a photograph great?Learn to identify the visual elements that make a photograph stand out from the hundreds of snapshots you see every day. Use those lessons to take beautiful photographs and edit them in a basic online editing program. Daily instruction and assignments will focus on pattern, light, color, and shape, with discussion focused on the classic, the surprising, and even humorous work of master photographers.

This class is designed for teens aged 12,13,14, and 15. Not appropriate for children aged 11 and under.

Please note: Class will be held for 5 hours/day: 9:30am – 2:30pm. Extended day hours will be available.
