Welcome to Digital Photography 1 class!
This week we will be going over what this class is about, policies and procedures, and getting to know each other a little bit. To see what Digital Photography students did last year visit the East Digital Media 2013-2014 site and look through the Gallery, Assignments and Daily Blog. Keep in mind that the first things you see is what we did at the END of the semester last year.
If you feel that you do not want to remain in this class, please let me and your counselor know as soon as possible so that other students can enroll in the class.
Thank you and I look forward to this year in Photography!
