Our most popular course, Digital Photo I: The Basics will be covering all the nuts-to-bolts aspects of exposure, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO, depth of field, motion blur, as well as comparing different lenses and the basics of composition. Featuring weekly assignments, class critiques, and developing a final project for an end of class student exhibition.
Moving past the basics, Digital Photo II: Intermediate is where things start to get interesting. This course picks up where Digital Photo I leaves off, and introduces color photography, white balance, lighting and on-camera flash, as well as composition review, color schemes and creative effects.
This methodical approach to learning studio photography begins with analyzing lighting in well-known photographs and breaking down the setups, tools and techniques required to accomplish these images. Each week we'll tackle one essential factor of lighting, from single-light setups to complex multiple-light setups, using modifiers, backgrounds, and various light sources to deliver amazing results.
This six-session, challenge-based course enhances your portrait skills through understanding and maximizing natural light, continuous (hot) lights, composition, lens effects, and working with human subjects. We'll delve deep into what it means to be creative in photographic portraiture, including how to overcome equipment limitations in the DIY studio, and develop basic post-production skills to complete the job.
