Students pile out of the bus, all with video equipment in their hands.

Legacy Charter Students Using a DSLR

High school students bustled around their DSLR cameras, taking turns looking through the preview monitors and wondering out-loud questions like, “Why does it look so dark?” and “So, do I adjust the ISO or aperture first?” With hands-on experience, along with the suggestions of their peers (and the help of their instructors), these students were able to figure out the answers to these questions and discover the ins and outs of DSLR manual settings.

This created the #NewAmericans series, which focuses on the stories of immigration, identity and community through the eyes of teenagers.
