Intro to Photography
Do you own a camera? Have you gotten the most out of your camera equipment? No matter your skill level, the goal of this class is to teach you how to use the equipment you own, and become a better photographer. We will cover the fundamentals of how your camera operates and give you the confidence to use it in any situation. And because modern photography involves a lot more than camera craft; You will finish the class with the knowledge needed to shoot, edit, catalog and safely store all your photography. We will cover Adobe Lightroom and PhotoShop in depth, so if you are an advanced user or beginner you'll fit right in. This class is a lecture style class with a lot of handouts and learning material. The majority of the photography will be done outside of class on your own with ample opportunities for you to ask questions and get guidance.Please note that there will be photo assignments outside of class, these assignments will provide images for participation in our weekly class.
