This workshop embraces photographic vision while addressing the multitude of technical digital approaches. Students work on location and embark upon field trips to fishing villages, lakes, mountains, forests and the islands in the Bay. They also take advantage of these environments for hikes and swimming.
In the digital darkroom, students learn Advanced Lightroom and Photoshop techniques such as layering, color and collage, along with techniques for controlling contrast, image manipulation, retouching and the use of various papers for printing.
To prepare students for college or other photographic work, the focus of the second week is to create a body of images in a portfolio form. There are evening shooting assignments, lectures, demonstrations, and assigned lab time where students process digital files and prepare images for this completed body of work.
This two-week program is designed for high school students between the ages of 14 and 18. Students must have the core foundation of photography concepts and technique, or have completed the Young Digital Photographers workshop. Admission is by portfolio or the instructor's permission.
What you will learn:
Students leave this workshop with a complete single portfolio of work for college preparation or future photography work. Become proficient with the tools, technique and experimentation which enables students to explore other level 2+3 workshops.
What you will need:
Students should bring a small body of prior work, DSLR camera, lens, memory card and a minimum of 120GB Hard Drive. We have cameras and accessories available for loan for the duration of the workshop if needed.
All Young Artist students will automatically have college credit set up for their workshops, free of charge. Each workshop earns one college-level semester-credit per week of attendance.
