Using the building blocks of a beginning digital photography class, youth are encouraged to work on a theme through the course, culminating in two final prints that work in a series. Students will operate their cameras in full manual mode and practice more advanced editing techniques like compositing, layer masks and clone stamps. To wrap up you will print and frame your final images for the friends and family showcase!
I have always been interested in photography, capturing and image and telling a story feels so true to me. The common theme in my work has been nature. I find the natural world so intriguing, so I moved forward with my study. I found myself wondering, what would nature look like if humans weren’t here? How can nature coexist with the manmade? Sometimes one is more prevalent than the other, but somehow they manage. In my work I hope you get a sense of the push and pull and the contrast between the city and nature.
There are people all over the world and each individual person creates, experiences, and lives. A voice raised in conviction is a lighthouse to millions adrift in the silence. Speak up. We can’t hear you, only the waves that crash at your feet.
