Photography Training for Schools


Photography Training for Schools

SwimBetterCropWelcome, our goal is to introduce you to digital cameras, take a tour of various camera features, and provide guidelines for hands-on digital photography practice. You’ll learn how to quickly download your images to the computer, and then edit and enhance them using everyday software.

Really, it’s Easy

olympus back4_17_14photographyDigital photography has many advantages over traditional photography. Your new camera will let you view images as you shoot them, and then decide whether to save or delete each one. Sharing photographs with friends and family is incredibly easy and fun with this technology. Integrating digital images into presentations, projects, greeting cards, documents, flyers, and much more is a snap! You’ll be empowered to create all sorts of projects across the curriculum.

Things to Consider

Tree2-400Learn about the shutter lag, sports shooting, rule of thirds, leading lines, and foreground interest.

We’ll wrap up by showing you a fast tool for building your yearbook online, and share how other schools generated profits from their yearbook club.  Every attendee gets an 80-slide presentation to support your photography or yearbook club!

Then we’ll share a photo contest that teachers and students can enter.
