My students need an in-class lighting studio to learn the basics of lighting, experiment with professional equipment and to level up their use of portraiture in their artwork.
This project expired on June 6, 2018.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are very independent in establishing success within my classroom. They work jobs outside of school to pay for their own materials & spend their time on the weekends planning for their photo shoots. They strive to use their artwork as a form of communication to enhance the overall culture of our school.
Our students take pride in collaborating with their peers as they take ownership in their school and learning experiences.
Our school constantly strives to give every student amazing experiences they will remember for the rest of their lives. The dialogue that remains open between staff, admin, students and parents is what makes our community so strong.
Students will be learning how to use lighting intentionally in order to level up their use of portraiture within their artwork. We have purchased digital SLR cameras that we have saved up for as a department for a couple years, but the students would truly benefit from having a lighting studio present in order to demonstrate the types of lighting and experimenting with professional equipment.
Students will be able to learn not only how to light their subjects, but to create dramatic portraits that tell a story and level up their techniques/skills within Photoshop.
We currently have no well-lit areas of the building in which for students to experiment with lighting, so this studio would allow students to set up equipment, learn the care for all parts needed and to create strong images in which to engage with their viewer.
