Digital Photography Class/Lexington High School
The Digital Photography course at Lexington High School focuses on improving students' technical competency with the digital camera, as well as providing information and inspiration as to how students can use digital photo as a means of self expression. Students begin the year by exploring their own cameras and later learn about the functionality of Photoshop and of how it can be used to both improve and alter their own digital images. Once students understand basic principles of digital photo taking and image manipulation, they are encouraged to find their voice through their photos.
The photos used in this exhibit come from a wide range of projects. Aside from being technically well executed, they each elicit a deep emotional reaction from the viewer.
