Rising Grades 7 to 9

Use cameras, lenses, light, and editing software to create images that express your artistic vision.

Exercises emphasize exposure, composition, color, lighting, and achieving artistic effects through the control of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.

Subjects include plants and flowers, food, portraits, products, sports and action, and architecture.

As a final project, students assemble a portfolio of their best photos.

Students work in pairs. Fairfax Collegiate provides cameras and computers.
