Digital Photography + Photo Editing (Ages 12-14)
Learn how a digital camera works, how to import photos to computers and how to use Adobe Photoshop to edit. Go on field trips around the neighborhood to take photos, and enjoy demonstrations, hands-on practice and detailed overviews on composition and creative decision-making. Students must also have permission to go on walking field trips around the neighborhood.
- This class takes walks around the neighborhood, so dress appropriately. Students may bring their own digital cameras. Students can bring an iPhone, a basic point and shoot or a DSLR. If you need to borrow a camera, VisArts has very basic point and shoots cameras. Please email t[email protected] to reserve one, as we have a limited number!
This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
About the Instructor
I am a photographer and educator, focusing in historic photographic processes. I work with medium and large format film, as well as create negatives using the wet-plate collodion process. Frequently, I can be found setting up my mobile darkroom along bucolic back roads and hazy riverbeds, working with my hands and light to capture a disappearing reality. As an artist, my work is greatly influenced by the land I come from, a place of impenetrable growth and dark tunnels of kudzu. I use historic photographic processes to capture contemporary subjects and I have a portrait studio here in Richmond where I enjoy collaborating and creating with members of our community.
