We'll explore different functions and capabilities of our cameras to take photographs of our surrounding environs, wildlife and people. To end each day we'll use digital photo-editing techniques to prepare them to print. At the end of the week, students will choose their favorite works to comprise an exhibit open to the public as well as to adorn the walls for the coming school year. Any kind of camera is welcome—from an old phone camera to a 35mm disposable, polaroid, to a professional-grade SLR.
