In this sequential class to Basic Digital Photography for Teens, students will receive reinforcement in the concepts from the previous class and push toward the next level of photographic expression. Emphasis will be on image capture while practicing sound technical fundamentals. Using the camera to interpret the world around them, students will work toward mastering camera settings, metering techniques, and white balance selection for proper image capture, while engaging in more creative and thought provoking assignments.

Over five days, participants will be given exercises to photograph some of the major genres of photography, including but not limited to: stylised portraiture (while also learning examples of how to direct subjects), architecture (with a trip to the Getty), black and white, and the art of telling a story in a single frame. Students will be given examples of how photographers have approached these genres, and conceptual projects will be assigned using the methods learned. Daily critique and feedback will offer guidance for each student as they move toward mastering their camera as well as the importance of learning to critique and providing feedback.

By the end of class, students will become more comfortable using their digital camera with predictable and repeatable results, gain confidence in making deliberate decisions, discover how to critique and engage in thoughtful discussion, and begin to communicate through photography instead of just taking snapshots.

This course will include at least one field trip (normally the The Getty museum). Students/parents should be prepared to meet on location and provide their own transportation. For the field trips, students should wear comfortable shoes and expect to walk up to two or three miles for each trip.

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. If needed, LACP has digital mirrorless cameras provided by Fujifilm that students can borrow for in-class purposes. Please contact the administration at info@lacphoto.org if you need to borrow a Fujifilm camera as there are a limited number available.

A note from the teacher: This class is incredibly fun. We do our morning critiques and discussions over tea and cookies on bean bags. Students learn to provide critical feedback and praise. Although the class will be learning from photographic masters, students will learn that their photographic eye is to be trusted. We finish the class with a mock ad agency set-up as we go through the process of looking at each others’ work without bias. Words cannot express how much fun and how rewarding it is to teach this class.
