DMA SNAPshot: Attack of the Roving DMA Shutterbugs!

By Phill Powell

Each summer, bands of roving DMA shutterbugs, armed with cameras and other photographic equipment, swarm the campuses of some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in North America.

What do shutterbugs seek? Interesting subjects to capture.

What do they do with these images? Manipulate them in interesting ways, using Adobe Photoshop.

Why do they engage in such behavior? Some want to grow creatively. Others are interested in photography as a potential career.

What is their natural habitat? They come from all areas, but migrate during summer to cool college environments (like Stanford and Duke).

Check out the learning adventure that occurs at Digital Media Academy summer photography courses!

POINT, SHOOT & SOAR!

Today’s cameras are more sophisticated and intuitive than ever before. But learning how to use one effectively can be a complicated process, if you try to go it alone.

Kids (ages 6-8) and teens (12-17) into taking pictures should consider spending part of this summer at one of DMA’s summer photography camps. You’ll never learn more or laugh more, and it could be the first step in a journey that ends with a career in photography.

At DMA, we can show you how!
