DSLR camera required.
First time participants attending an entry level camp explore the fundamental principles of photography and digital workﬂow. Emphasis is on DSLR camera operation and setting the aperture, shutter and ISO in the manual mode to achieve proper exposure and white balance.
Creative exercises include:
- writing with light,
- freezing and blurring motion, and
- manipulating depth of ﬁeld to produce technically correct and impactful images.
Participants are introduced to the basics of digital workﬂow and use imaging software to organize and present their electronic images.
Second time participants attending an intermediate camp refine their technical skills and incorporate rules of composition, elements of design, light, colour and tonal harmony to create a series of impactful images. Postproduction assignments include creating digital mats and developing an electronic portfolio useful for a variety of creative purposes.
Third time participants attending the advanced camp discover the capabilities of portable electronic flash and learn to calibrate available, ambient and flash exposure. Creative exercises include freeze motion with flash and combining natural and artificial light sources to achieve cool effects. Advanced participants also learn to use studio lighting systems and light meters to configure high and low key lighting scenarios to photograph products and portraits.
