Student Photo Exhibition

Two students from Beaver Brae Secondary School ACE program holding and looking at cameras outside in the winter during their the Intro to Digital Photography class.

From the beginning of November, the Ne-Chee Friendship Centre has been working with the ACE and ASSP programs on an Intro to Digital Photography course. This course was focused on the technical aspect of shooting pictures with a DSLR as well as basic composition. Every week students focused on different aspects of digital photography. There were a handful of photoshoots planned and lots of different skills acquired. The culminating goal of this course was to have presentable work to display to the community. This is just the beginning and we hope to be back next year!
