Photographing In the Snow!

On the second day of the Tuesday preteen class we focused on making properly exposed images by using the light meter in our cameras, and reviewed shutter speed and aperture. We also looked at examples of how to make pictures that we might carry in our imaginations by creatively using these functions. We finished  class by spending some time in the darkroom learning all the basic rules and names of the tools that we will use next week when we begin printing.

Here’s what students had to say:

In the darkroom we learned how to take care of ourselves and our pictures. You should never expose light onto your film or in the darkroom! Otherwise it will ruin it. -Khidar

I made a lot of photos inside THE POINT, and then I went outside to capture nature.  My favorite part was learning about the chemicals in the darkroom.  -Khalid
