Photography I 

Terms: 1
Grades: 10,11,12,PG

This course introduces the basics of photography as an art form. Students learn to operate a digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera and to edit in Adobe Photoshop.  Early assignments emphasize the creative process and an understanding of light, composition, and subject matter. Later assignments explore portraiture and street photography.  Peer critiques and frequent discussions about photographs by historical and contemporary photographers provide feedback and inspiration. We ask students to provide their own digital SLR cameras whenever possible. (Digital SLR cameras are available for loan through the arts department.)
