Photography – NEW for YAP 2017

The “focus” of this new class is to provide direct “exposure” to the art and act of Photography in an exotic Costa Rican setting! Daily classroom instruction will be provided about essential photography elements including camera settings, light and exposure, composition, and digital enhancement. Students will then directly apply what they have learned via customized photo shoots specifically designed for this rich rainforest region. From a river safari designed to photograph wildlife in their natural habitat to a waterfall hike that will be flush with the flora and fauna of the region, students will be able to truly see this part of the world through a different lens while “framing” their experience utilizing a variety of photography techniques. If “enhancing” your skills while building a portfolio of professional quality pictures that are as diverse as the region itself “captures” your interest, then this class is for you!
