Program Description

I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer with 30 years of experience.

My three day photography program  is geared towards high-school students and will focus on photo-based image making for story telling, communication, creative expression, personal exploration and digital output.
Day one focuses on why photography is important and the fundamentals of photography with an open discussion and questions encouraged. It will also cover the basics of what makes a “good” photograph: composition, light, perspective, etc. NOTE: It will not cover technical aspects such as shutter speed, aperture, and iso as this class is geared to students who will be using their phones to take photos.

The three-day Adobe Photoshop program teaches how to use Photoshop to enhance images, composite images using layer masks and much more.  Students will learn the Photoshop interface which includes:  Document window, Menu bar, tool bar, Options bar and Panels.  In this program, I walk students through building a composite image using different images and text.  Then they will learn how they can enhance their own images using adjustment layers and other techniques.
