Digital Photography Techniques

Ages 12-18
Session 4. Instructor: Aaron Alviano

We’ll explore six different kinds of photography over the course of eight days: nature photography, portraiture, macro photography, action photography, product photography and the creative technique of drawing with light. We’ll discover, as photographers, how to rise to the specific demands of each, learning better camera technique along the way. Afterwards, we’ll move to the digital lab and explore new ways to manipulate and edit our work. Campers in this program can expect to learn a host of photographic skills including framing, colour correction, lighting, correct use of a photographic studio, how to work with a model, the possibilities of aperture and shutter speed, use of macro lenses and much more.

Please bring along your digital camera and a USB flash drive to record your work.
