Students learn basic camera functions, such as shutter speeds, ISO, bracketing, light and composition. Both digital and film cameras are welcome. Lessons in the classroom are brought to life through experimentation with landscapes, still life and portraits. Out in Landon’s scenic campus, budding photographers develop camaraderie as much as specific skills.
The course also introduces a variety of computer programs, from Illustrator to Photoshop, with many opportunities to experiment. Students are also introduced to basic film-making and animation techniques.Fee: $175 per week; *$150 for week of July 1
