Biography

This class is for students who want to learn more advanced photographic techniques and editing processes in both analogue and digital photography. Students learn to use manual controls in both film and digital cameras to experiment with focus, depth of field and exposure. While learning the analogue process emphasis is placed on image and print quality using the dark room. While learning the digital process students learn advanced photo editing software to edit and manipulate images. With each project, students explore classic photographic themes; light, darkness, color, still life, landscape, portraiture, composition, abstraction, texture, reflections, patterns, and many others. Students are encouraged to experiment, and are given the freedom to pursue their own personal interests and styles.  Students are provided with in-class use of DSLR camera, lenses and software tools.
