This winter may keep us inside but we’ll be having fun making creative imagery to care. In PhotoType, we’ll turn our images that we take using a DLSR and film cameras into posters, postcards and anything else using Typography. We’ll use Photoshop and Bridge to edit then In-Design for layout. We’ll also develop film and scan the images, uploading to our flash drives to edit. We’ll go on a field-trip, too (weather permitting).
