Photography & Film Making
Each student will have an opportunity to have their piece published online and to start building a professional portfolio.
Students develop the skills necessary to research, compose, and capture digital photographic projects in a hands-on course. Students are encouraged to be creative, but are also taught to think of each project as a concise statement of artistic, documentary, and/or journalistic intent. They expand their repertoire of techniques with light and shadow as they work with professional lighting and grip hardware, as well as inexpensive and unconventional practical sources of light and shadow.
No significant prior experience in photography is assumed. The program brings everyone to the same level very quickly, beginning with the fundamentals and filling the inevitable gaps in the understanding of those who have some experience.
Girls Rock SB programs encourage girls to be confident in their own skin, to know they are enough in all that they do, and to follow their passions, whatever they may be. We recruit instructors from the world's leading music conservatories, and while they are of course extremely talented musicians and teachers, they are even more incredible human beings and mentors to our community's girls.
All cameras provided.
The photography + film track is offered to girls 9–17 years old; in the after school and ALL summer programs.
