A picture is worth a thousand words! Knowing how to manipulate images through both camera and production techniques is the key to telling intriguing stories through photographs. Students will learn the fundamentals of composition, depth of field, and lighting, then take their skills to the streets for practical, hands-on learning. Through project-based workshops and field trips to visually interesting landmarks around the city, students will create digital portfolios to showcase their art to the world. All students should bring their own digital camera or smartphone/ipod capable of taking digital photos.
