Welcome to the 2012-13 School Year!!
Creative Photography is program where traditional photographic techniques meet the digital world. Students research photographic history, theory, techniques, and materials. Students explore compositional design principles and elements; along with the fundamentals of portrait, landscape, and studio photography. Creative Photography students import their images into the computer and digitally edit the photograph using the industry standard photography software, Adobe Photoshop.
Students are encouraged to pursue their own photographic interests while completing a wide variety of photographic assignments that encourage exploration of different genres of photography. Using varied photographic processes and techniques students learn to communicate and express emotions and concepts in their images. Learners will organize their photographs, as an on-going-activity, in a portfolio/binder. Students will participate in critiques to reflect on the images they create.
The Digital Photography Book, Volume 1 by Scott Kelby
Exert from the Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby: NO PENALTY FEE FOR EXPERIMENTING:
In the days of traditional film, the only people who could really afford to experiment were pros (or wealthy amateurs), because both the film and processing cost money, and experimenting was just that—taking a chance with money. Now, with digital, not only can you see the results of your experiment instantly (on your LCD monitor), but you can see the full-size results on your computer, and best of all—it doesn’t cost a dime. Got a crazy idea? Try it. Want to shoot a subject from a really wild angle? Do it. Want to try something that’s never been done before? Go for it. …try something new.
