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 two events per each six weeks for the yearbook. Students will typically do these events outside of class. During class, students learn about and practice different styles of photography like food and street photography. 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.
The class is free flowing and loose reigned. 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. Ms. Stamp acts as an advisor for the class.
