Photography & Digital Imaging

Students learn fundamentals of digital photography. How cameras work, how composition works, how lighting works, how to use photo editing software. Perhaps the most useful part of classroom instruction will be daily reviews of photos students have shot the previous day(s).  They will see what makes a successful photo and what does not.
