Did you know that during the first 2 terms VD Juniors and Seniors have been learning how to use professional digital camera's and lighting equipment? Well they have. Students have been performing photo shoots using all the manual settings of a digital camera and using strobe flashes, and studio lighting to complete a variety of eye popping projects. They also know how to compose their photographs like a professional, so be sure to pass the camera to them so they can utilize their newly acquired talents at your next family function. Browse their websites to the right for proof.
