In Digital Photography, campers will have the chance to see the world through the lens of our DSLR cameras. While taking photos, campers work together to learn how to frame a shot, determine focal points, and adjust aperture and shutter speed for lighting, as well as learning about the different shooting modes. They will go beyond the basics of point and shoot, and learn how to truly capture and manipulate an image.
Once photos are taken, campers will have the opportunity to edit them through Adobe Photoshop and/or Lightroom. Campers will become familiar with terms such as saturation, contrast, temperature, and more! As a final project, campers will create and maintain a portfolio that will showcase all of their beautifully taken images. They will go home an expert in the field, ready to capture and document the world’s most captivating moments!
Campers will create online portfolios and link RAW files for them to keep and share from home.
