  • About the class...

    This is a full year course.  The first half of the course will introduce students to the workings of digital SLR cameras, including manual setting (f/stops and shutter speeds), and photo-composition techniques.  The second half of the course will introduce advanced techniques and equipment.  Students will learn caption-writing, digital photo editing and digital file management.  Students must provide their own digital camera.  Cameras are NOT available for students to use. Students may use any type of digital camera, including those on a cell phone or tablet, that allows for the downloading of images to a computer for manipulation. The purchasing of other supplies, such as memory cards, card readers, computer photo paper, etc. may be required at student expense.
