If this is your first time in my class welcome! If you're a returning student, you'll notice I've made a few changes.
First off, this is where you'll get pretty much all of your information for my classes. This is also where much of your work will be displayed (check the "Photos of the Week" galleries to see work from previous classes).
Go ahead and bookmark the site on your phone (it'll come in handy when you're out shooting and need to look back at the assignment instructions), and bookmark it on the laptop you will be using (if it's not already bookmarked).
Also, use the Chrome browser. I don't check compatibility with IE (and I'll probably tell you to quit using IE every time I see it open).
For Level 2 and 3 students, you'll notice that I've condensed the blogs into one blog in an effort to streamline the site. Class specific posts will be labeled accordingly.
Make sure you have a working email address; when I grade photos, I will be using a rubric in a Google doc, and will send out your grade and critique to the email address you provide. You will be uploading your images to our itsLearning site, so if you don't know your login, we'll need to get that squared away before the first assignment is due.
For DPI, you will be reading Complete Digital Photography, 7th ed. by Ben Long. I spent a long time trying to decide on a textbook for this class that was informative, comprehensive, and not boring, and this is what I came up with. You will be expected to read on your own time (I suggest taking the book home and leaving it there for the duration of the semester), and you will be taking tests on various chapters over the course of the semester.
Before we get started learning about photography, I need to know a little about you. Please complete this survey online in order to help me better understand you.
