introduction to photography

photo workshop.png

This three-day workshop is designed for teens who desire a better understanding of their DSLR camera and its technical functions. And equally important, students will investigate some of the ways in which a photograph can be made (or taken). How is photography applied in the world of Fine Art? How does it influence other artistic media and vice versa? Students will be introduced to the works of notable artists that have profoundly shaped the way in which we see images today. Through participation in hands-on projects, the class will gain a familiarity with their camera that will enable them to create their own interpretations beyond this workshop.
