The 12 Elements of Better Image Making: Impact, Creativity, Technical Excellence & Subject Matter

Every successful photograph depends upon a range of strategies. Good photographers use these intuitively - great photographers use them intentionally! Each weekend session will focus on several of these techniques so you can thoroughly explore each element and benefit from seeing how other participants interpret the same technique. Join Paul for one or all three sessions of this class to review the elements that create powerful images.

Photographs communicate a variety of stories to the viewer. In this class you will learn to reflect upon what you are trying to convey in an image. What would make the story more evocative? How could it speak more loudly? Through assignments and referring back to the twelve elements, learn to create images that tell a strong story and are more than just a picture.

OIT Training Learn IT @ Lunch - Dinosaurs in the Classroom? With Augmented Reality, Yes

Augmented reality (AR) uses devices like headsets (or even phones) to add virtual items to your physical space. Imagine having a triceratops in your classroom that students (wearing headsets) can walk all the way around. Now imagine letting the students choose to remove layers from the triceratops to see the skeleton. Taken a step further, imagine replacing the virtual skeleton with photos of fossils that have helped us understand what that skeleton looked like. If we knew what the triceratops sounded like, we could even add audio!
