What is expected of me? This is a fast paced photography class that requires commitment in and out of the classroom. All photographs that will be submitted for projects must be taken outside of class as homework. You will be given ample amounts of time to complete these photographs, but please do not wait until the last minute. What do you need for this class? Each student must have a digital camera (preferably a DSLR), memory card and a portable storage device. A $10 Lab fee is also required and will be collected within the first few weeks of class.
Attendance: Be on time. No exceptions. You get one unexcused lateness, which is your only warning. All other unexcused lateness’s count against your participation grade that day. YOU MUST HAVE A PASS IF YOU ARE LATE!
No Food or Drinks: Absolutely NO FOOD. If you need to have a light snack during class, you must exit the room and eat it in the hall. A capped bottle of water is allowed. However, any other beverages could spill and ruin yours or your neighbor’s computer, camera, or work.
Cell Phones /IPODs: Keep it in your backpack.
Clean Up: Make sure to clean up your area at the end of each class. Clean up will occur between 2-5 minutes before the end of class, depending on the material begin used. Make sure to work through the entirety of class. Early clean-up will result in loss of participation points for that day.
