NEW! - Photography Camp With a Pro
3 Day Workshop for Teens
(For your camera crazy teenager)
Instructors: Tom Upton and Nicole Marshall
In today’s modern world, the Camera is the thing! Visual communication skills are key to your child's academic experience. This is a three-day course led by professional photographer, Tom Upton. Based on photographic fundamentals of exposure, color and composition, your teen will learn how to use the controls of their camera to get better photographs. This is a stop-and-get-off-the-bus tour of Adobe Photoshop elements 6. We will cover photo editing techniques for online slideshows, Facebook and Flickr galleries. We will teach basic print making on common household color printers so your child can be a champ on the yearbook staff or with those semester-end project presentations. We also have some plain old fun with the joy of photography.
Lunches, snacks, a course booklet and a 10 image 8x10 portfolio (yes, of your child's photos) is included.
Space is limited to six students, ages 13-19. (Sorry, grown-ups, we'll offer this class for you, later in the year!)
Requirements: Students are required to bring a good laptop and Adobe PhotoShop Elements 6 (available for approximately $80 at Fry’s or Costco) for this class. Also required is at least a point and shoot camera. A DSLR camera is preferable. Although there are excellent uses for both point and shoot cameras and DSLR cameras, the better the camera your student has, the more your student will learn for future use.
