Welcome to Canyon's Film and Photo Classes
We work in what I call the Image Lab, Room E1 next door to our new TV studio. The lab has 13 student work stations, all new 21" and 27" iMacs. Each station is equipped with the software you will need to make great photos and learn about the creative process' of photography and filmmaking: Adobe Lightroom, Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Photoshop.
Besides learning the nuts and bolts of photography, we're going to learn to LOOK at photos and try to find out what makes a great shot. Also, why photography is so important to us, its history, and what students can do to begin a career in photography.
I have been a working photographer/cinematographer for 30 years, most of that time spent in the camera department as a camera assistant, operator, and cinematographer/photographer(www.taggleephoto.com).
I have been a photographer since I was old enough to hold a camera (my mom was a portrait photographer in Pasadena, Ca.) and although I teach digital photography I still shoot in all formats. Lately a lot of exciting sailboat racing
You can see some examples of recent work here, www.taggleephoto.com .
