Welcome to Mr. Bagsik's Digital Photography Class
This course will help the students become well rounded in the fundamentals of digital photography. Four areas of instruction will be emphasized: How cameras work, how composition works, how lighting works, how to use photo editing software. Students will, generally, receive basic instruction, demonstration, and see samples of the desired outcomes, at the beginning of each period. They will be allowed to go outside and shoot assignments, based on what they are learning. 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.
At the end of this course, students will:
- Know how to use various features of the camera to have creative control of your photographs.
- Be able to decide what type of lighting to use in a given situation to produce optimum results.
- See how photographic composition can make or break a photograph
- Understand how to use photo editing software to improve the overall appearance of images
