Photography Club

This club is open to Middle and High School students. The level of the class will be determined somewhat by overall student experience, however some experience of taking pictures and a general understanding of your camera’s controls is necessary so we can work on topics effectively. A desire to learn and become a better photographer, and have fun while doing it, is the most important requirement of the course. Becoming an accomplished photographer entails going beyond using your camera’s automatic settings. An understanding of the three critical elements of a camera; aperture, shutter speed, and light sensitivity (ISO) is the foundation of evolving out of taking the snapshot and into taking photographs. However, the place that photography really happens is in the human eye and brain and the camera is tool we use for capturing the images that we “see.” The goal/purpose of the class is twofold. The first is to learn and practice these fundamental technical aspects of the camera. The second is to take these skills and, with an awareness of composition, developing our eye, and “intention” become better observers of the world around us. Students will need a Digital SLR or Mirrorless camera capable of operating fully in manual modes (Shutter priority, Aperture priority, and Manual modes). As noted, you will need to have a general understanding of how your camera works. Read your owner’s manual. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop in and see me in MC-3. The Topics will be shooting with intention, consciously looking at the world around us. Composition: Rule of thirds, subject placement, what makes a photograph good, bad, or just mediocre. Aperture, shutter speed, ISO: What do they mean, how are they related, and how and when do I use them? Exploring patterns. Looking for details. Portraits, Sports photography (with the goal of shooting some school events). Photo editing. Finding your niche. Kevin Roy has been photographing on and off for over forty years, digitally for the last eight. I have photographed on every continent except for South America. I love taking portraits and interesting details during my travels and in my every day world, and continually challenge myself to learn more about all aspects of photography. I have been teaching photography classes and leading photography clubs for the past seven years and in addition to my general enjoyment in taking photographs I love inspiring others. You can take a look at some of his work on the following sites: www.kevinwroyphotography.zenfolio.com
