Teens: Introduction to Digital Photography
Improve Your Photographs and Photoshop® Skills
Teen photographers discover professional shooting techniques and expert Photoshop® curriculum in this immersive course. Working with instructors who are also professional photographers, campers learn how to consistently produce superior-quality images and how to easily fix photo problems with Adobe® Photoshop® – the world standard in image manipulation.
Course topics include how light, contrast, composition and shutter speeds work together to produce vibrant digital images. Working with their own DSLR camera, campers receive personalized, field-based instruction on how to improve their photography. Then, in the classroom, students use Photoshop® and their natural creativity to enhance their images and prep them for final presentation.
