Course Description

        In Advanced Photography we build on skills learned in Intro to Photography. We will use DSLR cameras and shoot primarily in manual mode. We will also experiment with phone cameras and film cameras, as well as employ fine art techniques in photo based projects. Students will learn basic photo editing as well.

Course Policies 

        In Advanced Photography, I look first and foremost for effort. Students who complete work, and try their best are the most successful. Each assignment has clearly defined directions, which should also be followed. In doing that, EVERY student should be able to grow as an artist, regardless of where their artistic skills were at the beginning of the course.

Required and Recommended Materials 


        Most assignments are given an extended period of time for completion, including during class time.  If a student needs extra time they must coordinate with me.  All assignments are turned in via Google Classroom.  If there are any issues with this they must discuss this with Mr. Weber before the due date.
