November 28, 2012
Times: 
Wednesday, 4 p.m.
Location: 
Gamble Education Center
 
Workshop 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
 
In Photography I, we practiced taking photographs and learned about easy photography lessons we can do with students in the classroom. Photography II explores the next step of the process.   How do we take student photographs from our cameras and create school projects such as books and movies?  
 
This workshop is a tutorial on how to download images from our cameras to our school computers using iPhoto. We will focus on how to manage multiple student files and practice uploading student projects to various programs such as Voicethread, iMovie, and Blurb.
 
Professional photographer, Reid Elem, leads this week’s experiential activity.  No previous experience is needed. It is not mandatory to attend Photography I to attend this session; however, please email Andrea Curtis for the “Photography Challenge” assignment prior to attending the Photography II Workshop.   Contact Hours: 2
