This workshop is for those who have the desire to create and gain new photographic knowledge to fuel your passion! Through this online course, you will learn how to operate your digital camera, and how to use the camera to create the images you want.
Students will be introduced first to the history of photography and then we will walk our way through the main components of creating an image, such as ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and composition. Students will even have the opportunity to hear from professional photographers throughout the industry!
A typical week will start on Monday with new lessons posted online with video tutorials, activity sheets, and a photo task to put into action what you just learned. Thursdays are held for photo task uploads, where students will post an image they took that week using their new skill. On Fridays Miss Londot and Dr. Londot will share a virtual critique of the student’s images, which will help them improve for the next week’s photo tasks.
At the completion of this workshop, students will receive a personalized photographer access badge along with a certificate! In order to enroll in this four-week course, head to the bottom of this page and click “enroll now”!
There will be NO live video streaming with students in this course.
