This class is for past Camera Club members as well as new students. All levels of experience are welcome. We will be photographing people, places, food, water/reflections, clothing, footwear, musical instruments, textures, and just about anything that we can find. There will be weekly shooting assignments for the students to do on their own. Two Fridays of the semester our class will open up our room to Palaestra families who wish to have portraits done of their children by the Camera Club students under the supervision of the teacher. We will also have at least one Friday where the class goes to Rotary Park to shoot images during class.
Materials Fee: $15
What kind of camera should you have?
I really like the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS Digital Camera for students. It costs $479.00 as of June 2016.
The more you can do in Manual Mode the better. Most cameras in the $250-$350 range will be sufficient. Look to see if your camera can turn off the automatic flash and if it has and ‘M’ setting for going manual. Also, a camera that can get very close to objects using Macro mode is extremely valuable for this class. A tripod would be a great thing to have on hand as well.
There is a new camera shop in Livonia on Plymouth Road called PRO CAM Photo & Video Gear. The address is 34224 Plymouth Road and the website is www.procam.com. This would be a great place to see all kinds of cameras and get a feel for what is best for you.
