Photography and Film


Students will work with Digital SLR cameras, learn about macro shots, portrait photography and candid shots, and study lighting, composition, the rule of thirds, and how to choose a subject.

Students will also study the history of photography, and how different artists and technological developments helped shape the field of photography today.  Students will have a comprehensive portfolio of work by the end of the class, to present further on in their academic career.

In Film, students will learn framing, in the terms of video and animation, and how a sequence of still images contributes to the creation of a film. They will explore the history of film, filmmakers and styles and study how sound and music contribute to the tone of a film.
