This program is ideal for burgeoning photographers who want to explore this fascinating medium and gain a better understanding of photographic technique. We'll start by exploring the fundamentals of photography. Then you'll learn to successfully use your DSLR in manual mode as you explore an array of digital techniques in lighting, composition and post-production. We'll look at the history of photography and look at the work of contemporary photographers. The majority of each day will be spent taking photographs in many different styles at locations in and around the University campus and Athens, with time spent later in the week learning the basics of photo editing. You will leave the camp with an online portfolio of your work to share with others and memories to last a lifetime. Note: Students are responsible for bringing a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera to camp with them.

Students are required to bring their own digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera, along with the accompanying camera manual (if available), battery charger, and computer interface cables (USB). Students should also bring a memory card that fits their camera; we recommend 8GB or higher, since we will often be out shooting all day.
