Each lesson includes an introduction to the lesson's subject, a short slideshow, taking photos inside or outside of the classroom, reviewing the photos, and a concluding summary. The students can use their own cameras, or the class's cameras as they choose

No need for any prior knowledge.  

The Subjects:

  1. Composition. Defying the edge of the frame, using a zoom lens, close up and far away.  In the slideshow, I will use examples for the Rule of Thirds, Vanishing Point, etc. In addition, I will demonstrate "Right and Wrong" Framing (e.g. air above head), as well as the use of colour.

  3. Aperture. Depth of Field and Selective Focus. Examples: The group of F64 and the photographer Ansel Adams.
  4. Shutter Speed. Long Exposure and Freezing Movements. Examples: Sports photos, vehicles in movement, night photography, "freezing" a drop of water.
  5. Influencing Photographers. History of photography (the very short version). Types of photography. 
  6. Portraits.  Taking photos of each other, and of ourselves.
  7. Photography as a Mean of Self-Expression. A personal point of view. Extraordinary angles. Telling a story through a photo.  We will try to tell a story in one or more frames
