The goal of this workshop track is to take students from wanting to get good pictures to creating photographs that "wow". We begin by building a strong foundation of technical know-how. This leads to students gaining the confidence needed to make proper exposures in a variety of conditions. From the technical we move forward to developing creativity. Students learn to make more interesting images by "seeing" the world around them through the camera. Everyone at one time has said, "I wish I could have taken this picture the way I saw it in my mind". The Digital Photography track gives students the knowledge, processes and creative development to make photographs the way they “see” them in their mind.
