Students who took my Silly 3 course a few months ago were introduced to some photo assignments from my husband, Steve Sonheim. We had so much fun coming up with those assignments we decided to put together a whole class!
with Steve Sonheim
June 13 – June 26, 2011
This class is about looking at the world a little differently through your digital camera, and bringing more photography into your art, and more art into your photography!
Here’s the scoop:
• Every day for two weeks (14 days), you will get a short, silly, and fun project to go and do with your camera.
• You will also spend a little time each session gaining a better understanding of some of the more technical concepts of digital photography. (And some computer stuff, too!)
• A “Photo Silly″ flickr site will be created so you can (optionally) share your photographs and get feedback from your fellow students, as well as enjoy and learn from others in the class. (However, if you are shy about posting your photos, Steve will be available to you to look at your work via email.)
• The class material will be up and available until August 15th, 2011, if for some reason you need to miss a day.
• Requirements: Any digital camera that you can download images to a computer and a basic photo-editing program. (Steve suggests either a trial [free] version of Photoshop Elements or Picasa by Google, also free. These are both easy to use and he will be giving instructions for both as we go along.)
• This class for anyone with a digital camera, a computer, and a willingness to take some chances.
(or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for other payment arrangements)
Note: When you sign up you will receive a welcome email confirming your registration within 48 hours. On June 1st, you will receive your first email from Steve with your supply list, passwords to the class website, etc.
P.S. Please help us spread the word. THANK YOU!
