The Sun Valley High School Film Department received the Vans Custom Culture Grant in 2013-2014 thanks to the presentation of students work. We were very excited to receive this grant. After the loss of our equipment, we have slowly been rebuilding our Media Arts program with help from donations so that our students gain a quality art education. The Vans Custom Culture Grant allowed us to purchase 3 cameras. Last semester, we explored Exposure with point and shoot cameras that had many limitations. Now students can explore Exposure(ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture) with manual settings.
A special thank you to Yalvani, Na-ckie-a, and Anthony S. for sharing their images.
