Want to capture the perfect shot with your phone or camera? Whether it’s a portrait, selfie, landscape, or object, Extra Ed can teach you the ins and outs of composition, colour-composition, focal length, filters, and much more! Build your portfolio as you bring your newly trained eye into focus. Every class leaves you with images for your portfolio, complete with expert critique from your instructor.

Photography 1

Learn the basics of what makes a good photograph, and how your camera functions, including aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. You’ll take and edit your own pics, and go on photo scavenger hunts throughout the week.

Photography 2

Learn how to get really good at photo editing software that is readily available. Learn about photo merging techniques, and participate in our weekly photo challenges.

Photography 3

Create advertisements, movie posters, and images in a sequence, like you can find in art galleries.

Miniatures and Stop-Motion (5 classes for ages 8 and up)

Create your miniature film set and learn the techniques for creating your very own, life-like, stop-motion movie. Make sure you have some action figures, Lego blocks, or Plasticine, as well as paper materials (for crafting), a shoebox, and the Stopmotion Studio app downloaded onto a tablet or phone for taking pictures, and you’ll be ready to go.

Photography Principles and Image Editing (for schools)

Learn the principles of photography as you work individually or in groups to discuss topics such as what images can teach us. Photographs taken are then edited and you’ll use a variety of tools and tricks to optimize your images.
