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:
This week we worked on making pictures outdoors and practiced being creative. I liked shooting the icicles! -Joe, Photo Credits: Ilene Squires
Today we went outside and photographed landscapes, each other, and we experimented with our light meters. -Evan
Today we learned about light meters and how to make a good picture. Then we went into the darkroom and learned about the rules to keep us safe. -Daniel
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
Today I made photos of people in the ICP community; people who work here and who are in our class. I was also an ‘ice’ model! -Nicholas
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
