Course Details

Monday - Friday, Aug 10 - 14 | 9am-12pm
ages 13-17 | RISD Campus | 2020/SE-TEEN-0568-02
5 sessions | 15 contact hours | tuition $285 | lab fee $10


Description

The face in the lens belongs to you, a classmate, your brother, sister or even your dog. All become portrait subjects as you learn how to photograph your friends and family and capture them as digital images. Next, you improve and enhance the shot, manipulating it with Photoshop tools that can make your subject glamorous or grotesque. You may have taken the photo in a studio, but you can use Photoshop layers and masks to transport the subject to uncharted territory -- to the deepest trenches undersea or across the universe, wherever you choose.

Applies to: AT, YD

Thursdays, Jul 9 - Aug 6 | 6-9pm
ages 13-17 | RISD Campus | 2020/SE-TEEN-2188
5 sessions | 15 contact hours | tuition $285 | lab fee $40


Description

Black-and-white photography is viewed as a foundation for understanding the basic principles and concepts involved in "painting" with light. Beginning with photograms and pinhole photography, students in this course explore how to capture an image with reflected light. They learn how the 35mm camera works and investigate the range of possibilities that black-and-white photography offers. In the darkroom, they explore chemical processing and different techniques used in making prints, while in the classroom, they explore the how-tos of producing a first-rate photograph, building a solid portfolio in the process. Note: Students will need a manual 35mm SLR camera, or one with manual override capabilities (older models are perfect). The lab fee covers all basic darkroom supplies, but please note that there are limitations on paper for printing.

Applies to: AT, Y2

Description

Learn how to shoot, manipulate and print digital photographs in the RISD CE digital photo studio. Camera operations and vocabulary come first as you learn the foundations of exposure, shutter, aperture and sensor plane. Composition comes next as you experiment with light painting, flash photography and the proper use of studio lighting equipment. You'll also learn how to constructively critique images. The course wraps up with an introduction to Adobe Photoshop so you can print your favorite photograph on a large-format printer!

ages 9-12 | RISD Campus | 2020/SE-CAMP-3289
5 sessions | 35 contact hours | tuition $515 | lab fee $30


Description

In this camp, students will take a hands-on approach as they explore the magic of photography. They’ll learn about the history and science of this medium, from the chemistry of creating light-sensitive surfaces, to the physics of early hand-built cameras, to the current technology of digital processes. They’ll make their own pinhole cameras, transform the classroom into a huge camera obscura, turn fabric into a photosensitive surface they’ll expose in the sun -- even as they learn the foundations of how it all works and how it relates to the pictures they take on their smartphones.
