  Digital Art

Campers will look closely at the relationship between art and photography with an emphasis on strong design elements, special effects and saturated color.  By using select focus, campers will produce striking art photographs from common scenes and objects.  Campers will sharpen their photographic eye and learn to "see photographs” and will take complex scenes and reduce them to their simplest form.

  Cell Phone Photography

In recent years the quality of cameras inside cell phones have become amazingly good.  Point-and-shoot cameras are very seldom used now since most everyone carries a cell phone.  With that in mind, this course is about learning photography using just the camera in your cell phone.  What that means is that with cell phones, you no longer need to learn all that technical camera stuff like aperture, shutter speed, etc., however, it still will benefit you to learn the photography stuff.  Learn how to “see photographs” and about the ideal time of day to take pictures referred to as the "golden hour".
