A picture tells a thousand words; what story will your photos tell? Capture your world through the magic of digital imagery. This class is designed as an introduction for students to the world of digital photography. All students will work on a small portfolio of ten photos. We will explore the techniques in photographing: action sequences, nature, portraits as well as conceptual photography. All students are asked to bring a digital camera (SLR preferred) as well as a thumb drive to class. All students will learn how light, contrast, composition and shutter speeds work together to produce vibrant digital images. Improve your picture-taking skills and Photoshop editing techniques while creating a digital art masterpiece. Melissa Dold currently teaches art at Seattle Prep and has a studio in SODO.
