CLASS DESCRIPTION:  Photographing Nature is a course for students of any age that are interested in photography and the outdoors. In this course, we will take and share photos of various subjects, from pets to flowers to landscapes. First, students will become acquainted with the possibilities of their own individual cameras, whether they be Digital SLRs or on a cell phone. We will also study important photography concepts such as composition, lighting,exposure, and content by examining beautiful photographs that coincide with each week’s subject. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to give and receive positive feedback from classmates on “Gallery days.” Finally, students will compile a portfolio of their favorite photographs taken over the course, where they will be able to share and admire their work with family and friends. You don’t need to live in the forest or even near a park to take this course; part of the creative journey will be finding artistic inspiration in your own surroundings.

Prerequisites: None
