Continuing Education Course

Digital Photography (Blended Course)

This course explores digital photography techniques for fine art, portrait, editorial, and documentary genres of image-making. Students use digital cameras in manual mode and a variety of program modes, while focusing on composition, exposure, and working with available and artificial light. Course covers use of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom image management software to edit and organize images, as well as planning workflows to help the photographer successfully satisfy project requirements portraying subject, space, and idea. This course is presented in a ten-week blended format including seven face-to-face meetings and three online meetings. Students work with their own DSLR camera or mirror less digital camera.
