Just because you don't have an expensive DSLR camera doesn't mean you can't take great pictures. Almost everyone on the planet has a perfectly good camera hanging out in their pocket, disguised as a cell phone. This course will take you through the basics of reintroducing yourself to that iPhone or Android on more creative terms.

The Photography courses introduce various hardware and software tools. Students learn how to operate their digital cameras in Manual Mode to get proper exposures and process images in Lightroom software. Topics that may be covered include the "Exposure Triangle" - (Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO), composition, file formats, lenses, cataloging photos, workflow practices, image editing and preparing files for social media and printing. We will discuss various photography genres, however the emphasis will be on Nature, Landscape, and Portraiture photography. There will be some outside and in-class demos by the instructor during this evening class. Your camera's manual will be the textbook and Macintosh computers are used during class. Basic computer navigation experience is a must.
