Introduction to Photography in the Digital Age

Learn how to capture more visually compelling images and make the most of digital photographic technology! Beginning photographers develop a solid foundation in photography, learn to use their camera as a tool to manipulate depth of field and motion and apply basic design and composition rules (or effectively break them). In addition, an introduction to Photoshop teaches students how to improve contrast, crop and resize photos and correct color casts post-production. Instruction includes weekly shooting assignments, demonstrations, discussions and class critiques.

Note: Fully adjustable SLR, DSLR or prosumer digital camera required. Required course for Professional Certificate in Photography.
