Seminar Description
If you want a high-end camera for the yearbook or photography department this is the seminar for you. We'll explore the difference between digital and optical zoom, then demystify resolution versus compression, and explore nuances of macro photography. Get composition tips, and complete a series of mini-photography assignments as we explore each feature. Transfer the pictures to the computer, and touch-up your photographs. Get tips on cleaning up red-eye, eliminating imperfections, and cropping images.

The second half of the session will be spent building photo-rich animation projects and exploring how can be used to ignite learning and promote achievement in diverse student populations. From mainstream students to English Language Learners and students on the Autism spectrum, animation is a great tool for collaborative learning and an effective way to reinforce content in all subject areas.
