Every lesson includes: An introduction of the lesson's subject, a short slideshow (15 min), taking photos inside or outside of the classroom (30 min), reviewing the photos, and a concluding summary. 

The Subjects:

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

  4. Shutter Speed. Long Exposure and Freezing Movements.  Examples: Sports photos, vehicles in movement, night photography, "freezing" a drop of water. We will take indoor photos of flashlights in the dark (long exposure), a drop of water (short exposure). **Will Need: A large lamp, 2-3 Flashlights** 
  5. Influencing Photographers. History of photography (the very short version). Types of photography. 
  6. Portraits. Taking photos of each other, and of ourselves.
