In-Person Learning Class at LACP

This week-long course for teens (ages 12-18) is designed to introduce students to the fundamental operations, techniques, and critical vocabulary of digital photography. Students will learn about the camera’s basic and advanced settings in an effort to make beautiful photographs, all while having fun. The class will cover technical information such as shutter speed and aperture, white balance, image quality, and compositional methods to help students develop their vision as budding photographers. Students will have the opportunity to practice topics presented in class through daily in-class exercises with their fellow students. Separately, students will be asked to bring in examples of photographs they want to learn how to create, will be given guidance on how to create them, and asked to create them via daily take home assignments which they are asked to present to the class the following day.

By the end of the course, students will be comfortable using the various controls of their specific cameras and will gain confidence in the way they approach different subjects photographically.

Open to students who own a digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) or digital mirrorless camera capable of manual control settings. No point-and-shoot cameras are permitted.

This course is strictly limited to 10 students.
