Perfect for high-school students looking to upgrade their photography skills, this 1-week program provides an immersive, hands-on digital photography curriculum focused on both the creative and the technical, as well as post-production editing techniques to make your photos shine.
Learn the fundamentals of digital photography and photo editing using your own interchangeable lens camera in this 5-day program. You will gain experience by shooting a variety of photo assignments that will expand both your technical skills and creativity, including portrait, candid, landscape, and action photography projects. Photography theory, including principles of exposure and composition, is taught in an engaging way through hands-on experience and group photo reviews. And because no professional photo is complete after pressing the shutter button, you will also learn essential techniques to process and edit your photographs to achieve your vision digitally.
Participants will produce a portfolio of professional-quality digital photographs that can be submitted for admission to a photography, photojournalism, communications, or fine-art college-level program.
At the end of this program, you’ll walk away with the following:
- An organized digital photography portfolio showcasing a variety of different skills and styles
- Edited photographs demonstrating your ability to compose, edit and process digital photos
- A certificate of completion, with a personal review and assessment from a Quinnipiac professor
