How can learning about photography and using a camera to take pictures of my world help me see it differently?
Why Take This Course?
In Middle School Photography B, students work on editing and organizing their pictures.
This course builds on Middle School Photography A. It continues helping students expand their photographic skills by guiding students in projects based on managing and editing photos, taking nature photos, photographing people, and maintaining appropriate photographer etiquette. Through a variety of assigned projects, students will engage their creativity by photographing a range of subjects and learning to see the world through the lens of their cameras. Although this is a self-paced course, a live class will be held on the first Tuesday of each month during the school year. Some kind of digital camera is required (phone cameras are ok; digital cameras are preferred).
