About the Class:
In Photography I, students learn about the basics of photography. Students learn how shutter speed, aperture, and ISO affect their photos. The basis of the class is in photojournalism. Students must take photos of 2-3 events per each nine weeks for the student media publications to use. Students will typically photograph these events outside of class. During class, students learn about and practice different styles of commercial photography like food and street photography and portraiture. Students also learn how to use the essential applications Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
Photography II and III students work with the yearbook and newspaper specifically to generate high quality photos needed by the yearbook and newspaper staff.
Besides initial lessons, students typically have plenty of class time to work on their projects. Students are free to do as they please as long as they meet deadlines for submitting content. Ms. Stamp acts as an advisor for the classes and the publications.
