Prosser, WA (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

Red Comet’s brand new high school elective "Digital Photography I: Creating Images with Impact!" is launched to supplement the current online curriculum. Photography is both an art and a science and often involves significant practice to create durable images. Photography is used extensively in art, media, business, science, manufacturing, mass communication, political movements and for recreational purposes. The most memorable moments of history are the ones captured in photographs.

What makes some photographs so memorable while others hardly catch the eye? Often, we wonder why our photographs did not capture the moment that we saw with our eyes. The Digital Photography I course focuses on the basics of photography, including building an understanding of aperture, shutter speed, lighting, and composition. Students learn about the history of photography and basic camera functions. Students use the basic techniques of composition and camera functions to build a portfolio of images – which includes capturing people, landscapes, close-up, and action photographs.

Red Comet offers a complete online program that is both rigorous and engaging. Red Comet is approved by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) in Washington State as a "Multi-District Online Course Provider" and as a "Multi-District Online School Program Provider". Red Comet’s online program excels not only in the breadth of its offering but also has received the best ratings for student satisfaction in Washington State. Red Comet’s online learning is engaging and presents even the most challenging topics in a way that students can understand. Students taking Red Comet's online high school classes are challenged using a variety of learning techniques which makes learning interesting while keeping them motivated to complete their courses within the allotted schedule.

Students choose to use Red Comet’s online learning program for a variety of different reasons, including: credit recovery, the ability to complete high school classes even when part time jobs or other responsibilities keep students from attending the courses in person, supplementing home school curriculum, or completing electives or Advanced Placement classes that are not available at private schools.
